This open policy, embracing a sort of "free-range" writing, results in one of the most eclectic hours of performance available. The stories in this series, recorded in front of a live audience, are a sampling of Story Salon's wide range of performers. The result is a unique blend of memoir and observation; sometimes funny, sometimes confessional, often controversial, always unique.
