2019 Show Themes:

Every year we create a set of themes to develop and trigger story ideas. They’re listed below. Themes give each show a focus. The idea is not to limit stories. Rather the idea is to offer a broad category or grouping into which a story might fit. If you have an idea for a story but are not sure where it might go be in touch. We’ll help you figure it out.

And we usually have one Open Theme night. If you feel your story doesn’t fit anywhere else, our Open Theme night is always an option. To sign up to tell a story contact us:
