Last night there was a great show at Caleb’s Cafe, here in Los Barriles. It was called True Stories and was put on by director, producer and theatrical genius, Camilla Ford. This was the sixth episode, so to speak. Last year was the first one I saw, and I was enthralled.
The show consists of local people reading 7-8 minute long stories of one of their life experiences. The stories are wide-ranging with emotions ranging from hilarity to tragedy. It is such a great idea, I would like to start a similar show at home in Delta. Anyone from there with ideas or wanting to read or help, let me know!
Anyway, this year I was honored to be asked by Camilla to be one of the readers. I selected, taking my cue from the title of the show, a true story from my old ultralight-flying days. I had fun reading the story and think the audience enjoyed it. Thank you, Camilla, for inviting me. You know I am not very huggy, but I am sending one your way. I already have next year’s story written (though it does need a little editing) with a half dozen more ideas rolling around in my head.
Here is the audio to the show along with the list of speakers in order:
- Hank Darlington
- Cazz Dunbar
- Camilla Ford
- Craig Hammes
- Christina Schraefel
- John Merryfield
- Sara de la Vos
- John Brooke
