June Long Story Short theme: Truth or Consequences
Sometimes honesty is the best policy, and other times, it’s a total disaster. This show features stories about subjective truths, things we wish we didn’t know, and times a lie causes more trouble than it’s worth. Whether we’re being honest with others or ourselves, telling the truth is not always easy.
Michael Cinquino (photographer, filmmaker), Daniel Moran (poet, essayist), Paul Doncaster (author, storyteller), Kevin Baringer (web developer, game designer, writer/artist/videographer), Rebecca Gomez (professional in philanthropy and early childhood education policy), Samantha Granville (UNH Creative Writing MFA Candidate).

About Long Story Short:
Long Story Short is not just a storytelling event. It’s an opportunity to share the funniest moments life brings us, the deepest human emotions, and the strangest day of your life with complete strangers. This bare-bones storytelling series, hosted by Beth LaMontagne Hall, is free of pretense and over-rehearsed monologues. The show throws a mix of professional writers, performers, and average folks who have no public speaking experience whatsoever on stage with just a mic and a spotlight to tell a personal story based on that show’s theme. What makes Long Story Short unique is the off-the-cuff feel many of the stories have, including each show’s one open mic slot. A brave volunteer from the audience is selected at random and must take the stage in a moment’s notice to open the second half, — not even the host knows what’s going to happen.
