Fellowships, community dialogues & new neighborhoods.  Community partnerships, new venues & a bilingual StorySlam. Season Seven has definitely been full of growth and in many ways a game changer for Ex Fabula. The ability to really listen and learn from our fellow community members has been amazing!

Now, who’s ready for one last plot twist? Join us this Saturday May 14 at the Pitman Theatre at Alverno College (New venue!) for our season finale ALL STARS StorySlam. Come and listen to a fresh batch of true, personal stories from Season Seven Audience Favorites! Storytellers will once again take the stage and share a ten minute tale related to the theme of Game Changer.

Audience members, we welcome and encourage your participation as well! Have a game changing moment you want to share? Write your tale in a few sentences on an UltraShort, and our emcees will read it onstage. (Yes, you are able to submit them anonymously.) In true community fashion, at the end of the evening the audience will select the Season Seven Audience Favorite.
