Featuring life stories by people of a certain age, 2ND ACT launched in September 2018 to critical and patron acclaim. 2ND ACT is a monthly storytelling series featuring ordinary people sharing the extraordinary things they are doing in the 2ND (half) ACT of their lives.
Inspirational, experiential and comical, these after-50 life stories will ignite your own imagination to join the growing community of 2ND ACTers!
Stories are 45–60 minutes in length followed by Q&A with the audience. Light fare will be provided before each presentation in the series.
Join us for stories by ordinary people doing extraordinary things that will inspire YOU to write your own 2ND ACT!
