While COVID-19 means we can’t gather together in the theatre to experience the thrill of a live performance, we can still connect to one another through stories. We want to hear a 3-minute story from you about what your life at home is like now. How has the meaning of "home" changed during quarantine? What unique experience can you share that will make us laugh, surprise us with an unexpected twist or help us feel less alone? We’ll share the best ones we get on this page. And when all this is behind us, we’ll ask some of our favorite storytellers to join us onstage for a StorySlam at SummerFest on July 18, 2020.
