“In the end, we’ll all become stories.”
That’s what Margaret Atwood said (in her 2006 book Moral Disorder), and we suppose she’s right about that. That’s probably at least part of why local storytelling troupe That’s What She Said has become such a popular attraction in Fayetteville in their two seasons of shows held at various venues the last couple years.
Stories are really important.
The troupe, who have been selling out shows telling tales of love, loss, travel, growing up, and other relatable subjects, is set to conclude their second season with three more shows scheduled over the next two weekends.
The first is titled Getting’ Whipped By the Bible Belt, and is set for 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 at George’s Majestic Lounge. The show, as the name suggests, tackles the topic of religion, and growing up in the southern states commonly referred to as “The Bible Belt.”
After that, the storytellers will conclude their season with a new show titled Siblings: Rivalries and Almost Murders on Saturday, May 6 at Stage 18 and on Sunday, May 7 at Bordinos.
After nearly two seasons of shows on all types of subjects, TWSS founder Amber Forbus said That’s What She Said still has plenty of good stories left to tell.
“The best thing about this show is that the stories just get funnier,” Forbus said. “We have experienced performers as well as a steady infusion of new talent from all over NWA including Eureka Springs and Bentonville. This keeps us sharp and open creatively, and we are ready to wrap up the second season with two hilarious shows.”
