(MOSTLY) TRUE THINGS: Hit Storytelling Show Announces New Dates for Long Island & New York City

Written by Long Island News & PR  |  04. May 2017

Stony Brook, NY - May 4, 2017 - New show dates have been announced for the hit Long Island based storytelling show, (MOSTLY) TRUE THINGS. Upcoming performances include The PIT Loft on Saturday, May 13th at 6:00 pm and May 20th at The Performing Arts Studio in Port Jefferson. In honor of National Mental Health Month, the May 13th show will feature stories that deal with mental health.
All shows are hosted by the show’s creator, Jude Treder–Wolff with a rotating storytelling line-up that includes Moth Winners, award-winning playwrights, and performers from UCB, The PIT, and Second City.
(MOSTLY) TRUE THINGS is a game wrapped in a storytelling show that has played to packed houses in Long Island for the past 2 years and The PIT LOFT in New York City since 2016. The show also features a successful teen version. 
The game is this: one storyteller tells the unvarnished truth, the other 3 include carefully-crafted little white lies. The audience gets to question the storytellers, who can improvise their responses.  The audience then votes for the person they think told it straight. With some improvised story-inspired music and songs written for the show by host/creator Jude Treder-Wolff and Wells Hanley. There are prizes involved, if you can believe a thing like that.
