Biography

SpeakeasyDC produces original performances with a cast of 4-8 artists telling true stories on a common theme. We customize shows to any topic or you may choose from themes we have already created, such as "Wetbacks, Aliens, & Towelheads: Stories from the First Generation", "Chocolate Jesus: Stories about Faith & Identity", or "Sucker for Love: Stories about Loves Found, Lost, and Imagined". Dozens more can be found at speakeasydc.com. The stories told are funny, poignant, gripping, and eye-opening. Storytelling resembles other art forms, but is distinct from poetry and stand up in that we tell honest-to-goodness true stories with a narrative arc. It is distinct from a reading because these stories are performed, not read, nor is it improv. Each story is meticulously crafted.
