Pros(e) of Pie – True Storytelling

April 28, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Prose of Pie has been the Hudson Valley’s most popular monthly storytelling series for nearly 5 years. Our January show was such a hit that in April we’re returning to the new Bethany Arts Community. Once again, we’re filling their former chapel with a range of true human experiences. The evening will feature renowned storytellers and rising locals sharing their tales on this month’s theme: Course Correction.

You can sit back and enjoy the show or join the fun: sign up for a 5-mins open mic slot or submit an anonymous answer to a written prompt. Either way, we’ll all be there to support and share.

ABOUT THE THEME: There are times when you have to accept that it’s time to make a move. Did you set off the wrong foot? Did life throw too many obstacles in your path? Sometimes the best laid plans just aren’t meant to be. Or, were you on the wrong road along and finally making a change for the better? Did you drag your feet too long before doing what you knew had to be? Did you make the leap eagerly or go kicking and screaming? Life, love, family, therapy. This month, we’re sharing all your stories of change, whether or not your were ready for them.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Join us to listen to storytellers and humor writers from around the region tell true personal tales on the monthly theme in a Moth-inspired format.
PLUS a pie bake-off: To start the evening, you’ll indulge in a sampling of pies made by local “pie-trepreneurs” and vote for your favorite between stories. You’ll please your belly and warm your soul.  Entry fee includes pie tasting, beverages, and great entertainment! We sell out many months, so be sure to buy your tickets early!

Admission is free if you bring a pie for the bake-off BUT YOU MUST NOTIFY US at least two days before to receive your free ticket. And if your pie gets the most votes, you win the prize and proudly bear the title of this month’s PieMaster!

Email co-producers Ivy Eisenberg or Zak Shusterman for additional information and to schedule a rehearsal. For tips on preparing your story, check out The Moth’s storytelling tips.

We all have a story within us. Come share, listen, and eat!
