On Monday, October 13th at 8:00pm, Dallas’ runaway hit storytelling series, Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales), will kick off its 4th season with an hour long evening featuring seven juicy true tales on the theme “Go With the Flow” at the Wyly Studio Theater. In an effort to satisfy a very hungry audience, an additional performance of all Season 4 shows will be held at the Texas Theater in Oak Cliff beginning with “Go With the Flow” on Wednesday, October 15th at 8:00pm.
Headlined by the “storytelling dynamo” herself Nicole Stewart who follow up on her “Bun in the Oven” piece from last season that went on to be featured on the Huffington Post, this cast also features Nayrok Udab, the stand-up comic sister of Dallas treasure Erykah Badu, who will share tidbits from her phase with lesbianism. Other highlights include a tale of adventure in the whitewater of Chile, a woman coming to terms with her incurable cancer, a reflection on going through that most pivotal moment of adolescence without a mother, and a hysterical stint on “Wheel of Fortune.” This season opener sets the standard high for another year full of stories that will shock, seduce, and soothe the audience.
Oral Fixation is now taking story submissions for all Season 4 themes. No writing or performing experience is necessary but stories must be true, personal, and on theme. For themes, dates, details and deadlines, visit the submissions page on their website.
