Story Time

Posted By on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 9:56 AM

Nothing beats a good story, and the weekend is bursting with them. On Friday Nov. 15 at Crush, settle in for Jeff DeMark's annual one-man show Writing My Way Out of Adolescence at 8 p.m. ($10, $40 with dinner) and find out how he made it.

On Saturday Nov. 16,, take a trip to the Emerald Isle for Blarney and Beer at 7 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse ($10). For the unfamiliar, blarney is the Irish art of charming B.S., which will be used for good in this instance, since proceeds benefit Hospice House. Stick around the playhouse for the start of Tellabration at 8 p.m. when Paul Woodland and friends will be spinning yarns.

Again, for the unfamiliar, every November during the Tellabration weekend, people all over the world hold events where you can hear tales both true and imaginary from writers, performers and fabulists — and maybe tell a few of your own. The North Coast Storytellers will tellabrate at the Humboldt County Library in Eureka on Sunday Nov. 17 at 8 p.m., and if the spirit moves you, you've got five to eight minutes of stage time to get it off your chest (free).
