Thursday, November 12, 2015--Doors open at 7:00 pm; show starts at 7:30 pm. $15 for members; $20 for nonmembers.
Reservations suggested. Space is limited. Life leads us down many roads--some by chance and some by choice. Based on that premise, a very talented group of local raconteurs will present short, unscripted stories based on the premise that careful planning, blind luck--and sometimes both--can lead us to completely unexpected destinations. In fact, sometimes the most unlikely detours make for the best stories. Sit back, let these tales draw you in, and soon you'll find yourself pondering whether it was free will or a quirk of fate that landed you where you stand today! This night of storytelling magic is being held in conjunction with the Greenwich Historical Society's current exhibition Greenwich Choices: 50 Objects That Illustrate Our History, a show that examines objects from the Historical Society's collection that represent turning points in the town's history.
