Those clever folks at the Black Box did a fancy rendition of our logo in chalk. Beautiful AND talented.

Well, what an extraordinary night of stories. We heard stories from Áine, Claire, Mary, Roy, Susan and Allison. Paul and I also told stories.

We heard stories of PE changing rooms; Hippy parents preparing you for a life of change; changing attitudes towards parents; changing terminals again and again at airports; changing nature of your primary schools; changing medication and changing moods; changing stories about religion; and changing stories about family after long-lost stories are found.

 

Truly a delightful, moving, raw, deliciously funny night. Thanks to all the tellers and all the listeners.

Our next theme is "Thanks" on April 13th. We say it all the time - we mean it, we sometimes don't, sometimes it feels enough, sometimes that small word can't contain the world of thanks it's trying to contain.

So, a night of stories about Thanks. Nine people with up to ten minutes each to tell a real story from their lives about Thanks.

Do you have a story? Read through the editorial guidelines and get in touch. If it's your first time coming to a Tenx9, the video below will give you a feel for the night.
