Slam winning storyteller and npr producer, Karen Given will host an open mic with stories inspired by the Bard's words. Bring your 5 minute stories showing how it really is true that all is well that ends well. Or that a rose by any other name smells as sweet. Or how important it is "to thine own self be true. True life stories, folk tales - whatever! Bring it. Look for us near the Parkman Bandstand on the Boston Common.

However ever you want to put the Bards words in your 5 minute story about your lived experience.

With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day...
