Word Plays at the Cabaret
Our Third Season: 2016

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

After our first and second seasons in Salem, Word Plays returns this fall!

The new-old art of storytelling is a blend of theater, stand-up comedy, reminiscence around the campfire, folk research, history buzz, ancient myth and midnight confession. It's always fascinating and always a surprise.

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.

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