Story Story Lie: Tales Of Terror At The Rio Theatre October 23

15 Oct

story_lie_octStory Story Lie is back at The Rio Theatre on Wednesday, October 23rd with Tales of Terror. They will be kicking off their 4th season with unreal stories that are likely to give you goosebumps just in time for Halloween. If you aren’t familiar with the premise of Story Story Lie, it’s simple. A group of Vancouver’s best storytellers, comedians, and performers share unique stories that seem too tall to be true. The catch? Only ONE of the SIX stories is a lie. During the show audience members get to question the contestants in an attempt to reveal the liar. The first audience member to guess who the liar is, wins respect, admiration and an amazing prize! The line up of storytellers include:

Graeme Duffy (Theatresports)
Emma Cooper (Rape is Real & Everywhere)
Ed Hill
Alix Born
Masa Kateb
Kevin Kokoska
Host:  Jo Dworschak

For those that have never been, the show WILL certainly contain strong language, somewhat mature and immature subject matter. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door. To purchase your advance tickets, visit Rio Theatre. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Show gets under way at 7:00 pm.

Story Story Lie has one simple premise: Vancouver’s best storytellers, comedians, and performers share high-stakes, near-impossible, unique stories that seem too tall to be true. The catch? Only ONE of the SIX stories is a lie. During the show audience members get to question the contestants in an attempt to reveal the liar. The first audience member to guess who the liar is, wins respect, admiration and an amazing prize! The line up of storytellers include:

Paul Anthony (Talent Time)
Graeme Duffy (Improv Against Humanity)
Emma Cooper (Rape is Real & Everywhere)
Ally Baharoon, (the stuttering story-teller)
Jessica Pigeau (Autistic comedian)
Lydia Rickards (British comedian)
Host:  Jo Dworschak

Note, due to the intoxicating subject matter this show is x-rated. For those that have never been, the show WILL certainly contain strong language, somewhat mature and immature subject matter. To purchase your advance tickets, visit Rio Theatre.
