Close out the Writers Institute with a night of LIP SERVICE: True Stories Out Loud, the smartest, hottest, and most honest storytelling event in South Florida. A blend of theater, storytelling, and literature, Lip Service features eight true stories presented before a live audience. The stories presented at Lip Service shows are hilarious, heartbreaking, poignant, embarrassing, inspiring—and all true! Though Lip Service stories are edited and rehearsed, the setting and the live audience guarantee a spontaneous night like no other.
Come hear great true stories, told by truly great storytellers: Claudia Franklin, Misha Mehrel, Italome Ohikhuare, Nicki Post,
Gabrielle Pelicci, Nilsa Rivera, Doug Shear, and Jeffrey Weinstock. Co-hosted by Esther Martinez-Kenniff and Nicholas Garnett. Stories include an African exorcism ritual, a teenage mother flees domestic abuse, a backyard pet cemetery, a rape victim faced with a difficult choice, a life-changing revelation about a broken collarbone, a cult-like women’s summit, excessive body hair, and a letter to The Fonz!
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe.
