Local storytelling heroes Helena Leet-Pellegrini and H.R. Britton plus out-of-town favorite Michele Carlo continue the momentum of great stories for 1st Person Plural, season 2. This monthly series gives accomplished storytellers who've honed their craft at story slams a chance to stretch out and tell more elaborate stories.


Stories come alive when Helena Leet-Pellegrini shares her personal journey through many of life’s trials and triumphs. From laugh-out-loud to deeply moving, her tales will satisfy and delight.  A psychologist and creative expression coach, she was an award winner at the Big Mouth Off, Massmouth’s grande finale in 2011. She has performed her one-woman shows at the Boulder Colorado Fringe Festival, Club Passim in Cambridge, and Amazing Things Art Center in Framingham.


A Midwesterner by upbringing, H.R. Britton has been performing and teaching on the East Coast since 1999. A regular on the New York storytelling circuit, he hosted the wildly successful “Lower East Side Stories” storytelling series at the Tenement Museum for two years.  Now in Boston, frequently tells stories with massmouth.  He also teaches storytelling workshops in Greater Boston high schools through the “Stories Live” program.  As a solo performer, H.R. does both original work and adaptations, and has performed his serio-comic monologues around the U.S., in Canada, and in India.  The FringeNYC Encore Series featured his solo show “Melting in Madras” this past September. 


Michele Carlo’s stories have appeared on NPR Latino and the MOTH’s GrandSlams and Mainstage in NYC; along with Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Portland OR, and Los Angeles. She was also featured in the recent PBS documentary Latino Americans of NY & NJ.   Her memoir Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks, was published by Citadel in 2010. Her essays have appeared in Mr. Beller’s Lost & Found: Stories From New York, SMITH magazine's Next Door Neighbor, Chicken Soup For The Latino Soul and F***ed In Park Slope, among others.  A stage adapation of Fish Out Of Agua is coming soon. Is your city next?
