Word Plays at the Cabaret
Our Second Season: 2015

Sundays at 2:00 pm   $10 (at the door only, cash/check)

After our first season in Salem, Word Plays returns this fall!

If you're one of those people who lingers in your car long after reaching a destination just to hear the end of Garrison Keillor's "The News from Lake Wobegon" or Ira Glass on "This American Life," then Word Plays may be for you.

Over a dozen performers will be telling during this season. At each Word Play, a different group of performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories about being human. You will discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer, combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.

Click here to watch many of our performers tell stories.

Siri Allison is the host. For more information, please call (518) 854-3998.
