Event Description

Please join us for our next Truth Be Told! Storytelling event on Friday, October 21st at 8pm at the United Parish, located at 210 Harvard Street (Near Coolidge Corner), Brookline, MA.  Truth Be Told! Storytelling is an opportunity to hear and share real stories, performed live, and without notes. Each performer has approximately 5 minutes to tell their story based on the monthly theme. 

The theme for Friday, October 21st is "Campfire Tales." Whether you have a story of wonder and astonishment, a hair-raising recounting of a creepy encounter, or tales of your adventures at camp, we want to hear your stories!

If you want to share your story, or if you would like more information, please email us at  We are asking for a free-will donation ($5 suggested per person).
Ideally, we would like to have ten (10) storytellers for this event.  At this point we are in need of storytellers.  If you feel called to tell your story, please e-mail us at so we can put you on the storyteller list.  We will also have a sign-up sheet the evening of the show for those that show up and decide they want to tell their story.
