Live Bait: True Stories from Real People


It’s all relative – a person connected to another by blood or marriage, an animal or plant related to another by common descent, a subordinate clause qualifying an expressed or implied antecedent. Relative is not absolute or independent; it is comparative, contingent, conditional. There’s relativity and relativism and, let us not forget, relations. Can you relate?

If you can, then come on down to LIVE BAIT and tell your story (if it is in any way, shape, or form connected to our October theme, “Relative”). Or just come and watch others share theirs. All you have to do is sign up at the door (come a little early, sign-up space is limited), and when it’s your time, we’ll call your name. It’s that easy. No notes, no rants, just tell your story like you’re telling your friends over a couple of drinks. There is a five-six minute time limit, please respect it.

Everyone is encouraged, performers and non-performers alike. Don’t miss this Rhode Island Monthly Best of RI winner for “Best Storytelling for Grown-ups,” Providence Phoenix Best of 2009 Editors’ Pick for “Best Excuse to Yammer On and On” and Motif Magazine Theatre Award winner for “Best Audience Participation Show.”

LIVE BAIT is hosted by Phil Goldman. With musical accompaniment and original “theme” song by Jerry Gregoire.

Friday, October 2th at 10:00 pm.
