  Mayses for a Summer Afternoon...Come and Listen
State: Illinois

Come and listen as Storyteller Susan Stone shares Jewish stories from the Yiddish speaking world; stories of rabbis, angels, peasants, demons and wise women too. Susan brings them alive through her dynamic performances of Chasidic, folkloric and personal tales, filled with humor, pathos and wisdom.

SUSAN STONE has been a storyteller for adults as well as children for over 30 years.
Jewish folktales and Midrash, as well as Chasidic tales, make up her repertoire. The telling puts them back into true oral tradition. Susan opens her heart and hopes the tales reach the hearts of her listeners, as she weaves her personal narratives throughout the programs, illuminating the tales.
She has performed in Warsaw, Lublin, and Lodz, Poland : "Bringing the Stories Home", She is the founder/co-director of the Evanston Public Library Storytelling Festival--this year on October 6-8.

Susan’s stories have been published in several collections: "Chosen Tales: Stories Told by Jewish Storytellers", "Yom Kippur Readings", "Ghosts and Golems", "New Mitzva Tales for the Whole Family", and in "Voices of Children: A Siddur for Shabbat".

Author and renowned folklorist Professor Howard Schwartz has said, “In her hands the tales, no matter how ancient, come hauntingly alive where every tale can be heard as if for the first time.”

  Vino & Veritas
State: Illinois

Vino & Veritast features a mix of “featured tellers” – some of the city’s best storytellers – and brave souls who throw their name into a lottery at the show itself. Bring a libation of choice and take advantage of our theater’s BYOB policy because at the end of every story, the teller will have us raise a glass of wine/PBR/Diet Sprite (in true BYOB fashion) and lead a toast. So let’s raise a glass to true stories of persistence, hope, love, sadness, and laughter.

7pm
Admission $10, $5 students
