Port Jefferson, NY - October 15, 2015 - (Mostly) TRUE THINGS is a monthly show that features true stories - with a twist - told live, without notes by people from all walks of life. This unique entertainment has comedy, heart and authenticity, but also includes a game that engages the entire audience. All the stories except one include carefully-crafted deceptions. The audience has an opportunity to question the storytellers about their stories, then votes for the person who told the unvarnished truth. Audience members who choose the correct person get a prize.
The next performance is Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 7 pm, at Performing Arts Studio, 224 E. Main St., Port Jefferson, NY.
