Tucson: Odyssey Storytelling presents SHOULDA BEEN DEAD, STORIES FROM THE EDGE


Odyssey Storytelling sponsors wonderful and fun monthly events at Club Congress in which six speakers explore a central theme. This month’s theme is “Shoulda Been Dead, Stories from the Edge.” You’ll hear six ten-minute real-life stories about . . the crazy stuff people did back when they were teenagers . . . Like maybe . . . nearly killing yourself or someone else and other near death experiences . . . the accident, the umbilical cord, going toward the light. Almost bankrupt . . . survival by bootstraps, luck, fate or the kindness of others. Come on out on Thursday evening.

Be entertained and amazed by this dazzling line up of storytellers:  Tucson native Edna Meza Aguirre, Food critic Buck Bannister, Actor Phil Bennett, Writer Susan Collinet, Artist Kate Hodges, Writer and chef Kim Lowry, and writer Earl Wettstein.

The stories are not read, nor are they memorized (although I expect they’ve practiced a bit).

By the way, it might be a good idea to purchase tickets in advance at Odyssey Storytelling. And if you have dinner at the Cup Cafe or Maynard’s  and tell them you are going to the show, they will reserve a seat for you. (For reservations at the Cup Cafe, call (520) 798-1618.) Maynard’s is (520) 545-0577.

  • Where: Club Congress, 311 E. Congress Tucson, AZ 85701 (520) 730-4112 (That’s the Odyssey contact number, not the phone for Club Congress. THAT number is above).
  • When: Thursday, April 7, 2011.  Doors open at 6:30 PM. Show starts at 7:00 PM  and goes until about 9:00 PM. Always on First Thursdays.
