Barefaced Stories is a modern type of storytelling, that can elevate those voices that might not easily find a microphone – real people, not just comedians or celebrities.
At Barefaced Stories, you will see real people from your community, take to the stage armed only with a true-life tale. They are honest, raw, vulnerable, wear their bloody, beating heart on their sleeve, and are some of the bravest folk you’ll meet.
When we hear other people’s stories, we begin to think about the world in different ways. Why not dob in a mate who you know would love their moment to shine in the spotlight!
The night will be a celebration of local stories on your local stages. With an audience and community as keen to participate as to watch. Barefaced Stories have nothing to hide. They are a love song to the human condition and stories that are about people surrendering to the chaos of being human. In one night you will weep, laugh, and maybe even pee yourself a little.
Real stories are what Barefaced loves and that’s what they leave behind.Visit website
