Tonight, December 13th at 7:30pm at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary is the second show in Dallas’ newest theatrical series. Like The Mothin New York or This American Life on NPR, Oral Fixation – An Obsession with True Life Tales features high-stakes, personal, true stories revolving around a particular theme. The December show features seven stories on the theme Home is Where the Heart is.
Participants work with producer Nicole Stewart in an editing process that brings out the juiciest parts of their story. Then, they read their work onstage, sharing transformative moments of their life with the DFW community in an intimate setting. Brave and soulful, these readers speak from the heart. It’s freaking hilarious at times, and sometimes sexy.
Upcoming themes are “One Night Stand” on March 13th, “Have a Field Day” on April 17th, and “Cooking with Gas” on May 15th. Stewart is currently accepting submissions for all upcoming themes. All shows will be held at The MAC in Uptown, 3120 McKinney Avenue, 75204. It’s a bright blue building and there is free parking in the lot.
