About the show:

Lockdown life. We’ve all experienced a huge range of emotions during the pandemic, and we’ve had to process tough things in isolation or over the dreaded Zoom. Now that we can get together in person, let’s talk about it!

The evening will feature local storytellers sharing a six minute life story from the pandemic. We’ll be sharing our grief, weird observations, and quirks of the past absurd year—and recognizing that laughter is a cathartic way to heal and keep moving forward.

Hosted by Bill Bernat and Emily Pitts, the show features local storytellers:

  • Behnaz Arzani
  • Katie Bajema
  • Julia Susman
  • Zeeshan Nayeemuddin
  • and maybe You!
  • Three audience members will tell stories about their pandemic experience, and anyone can "throw their name in the hat"
