A curated selection of stories

If our people are the heart of 2nd Story, then their stories are surely our lifeblood: stories of struggle, of strength, of survival, of love and joy and all facets of the human experience. Each year, dozens of new stories make their way to the chair (2nd Story shorthand for performing with us), and here we present a sampling of those works for your enjoyment:

  • Listen to our tellers, recorded live on stage or in the studio, as they turn the personal and immediate into something more universal and lasting.
  • Read the words that defined those stories in the first place.

If you’d like to learn how to tell a story in the 2nd Story style, check out our Training section.  Alternately, if you’re wondering how to get “in the chair” yourself, check out our section on how to Get Involved.
