Storytelling up late at Surry Hills Library next week

Went down to Surry Hills Library yesterday to check it out ahead of next week’s Storytelling show there as part of Late Night Library. The building may just take the coolest piece of architecture Storytelling has ever been performed inside of prize from CarriageWorks.

It’s a pretty great building, and it will play host to our free Storytelling show next Thursday 26th May at 9-10pm. That’s right. The Library is open late. This ain’t no ordinary library. It looks like a cross between a spaceship and a pristine bookshop. I’m not even sure if you’re allowed to borrow the books. But you can take the stories home with you, so come along to see real people telling true stories of their own lives. This show will feature Daniel Moore with a great tale about the comical discrimination present when he tries to join a women’s athletic group called Physie. Tropfest Best Actress Kate Worsley shares  her true tale of five different weirdos; and comedian, writer, and dog watcher Jen Wong shares stories from inside the bookshops that have been her employment staple for the past decade. Plus more to be announced.

The show is FREE thanks to the good ol’ City of Sydney but please do RSVP, the librarians told us that it’s almost full. You can book here.  AND THERE IS FREE CHEESE AND WINE for a limited time only. CHEESE. WINE. Be there or be, um, not eating cheese and  (drinking) wine.

    I volunteer with Eastside FM. Not sure if you will get this in time.

    I was just wondering if you knew anyone, willing to do a five minute interview over the phone on Tuesday around 4:30 about Campfire Stories?

    I couldn’t find any contact information. I did try the library, however all the people organising it were not in.
