Cincinnati’s True Theatre, now in its third season, continues to sell out every one of their onenight- only shows, advertising only 'true stories told by real people' and a theme. Each of their shows (including trueFEAR, trueFOOLISHNESS, trueHUNGER, and trueLOVE) have drawn storytellers from all walks of life. For the past two years, True Theatre joined the Festival with trueFRINGE, featuring only storytellers associated with the Festival. Back with the same idea, trueFRINGE (“3”) features 5 storytellers (all artists part of the 2013 festival) sharing true, personal stories that will give you that behind-the-scenes look at life in-and-around the theatre that will make you laugh, cry, and shake your head*. Don’t miss the chance to make your Fringe experience complete with this ONE NIGHT ONLY show! (*Laughing, crying, and head-shaking guaranteed).

The mission of True Theatre is to bring together a wide variety of people to share stories in an effort to create Community, encourage discussion, and remind everyone that ALL of us have stories to tell with unique insights and broad appeal. Though storytelling can take on many forms, True Theatre realizes that what great stories have in common are their power to hold attention, slow time, and capture the imagination. They may redden cheeks, make eyes water, and elicit eruptions of laughter. They take you somewhere. Although great storytelling is not limited to true, personal stories, True Theatre believes that these real moments of our lives, from the mundane to the extraordinary, give both the speaker AND the listener the ultimate sense of being part of a larger community than they were aware. Come join us for an evening of True Theatre ...where time slows down and we can listen.

    True Theater does storytelling and they do it well. Last year they solicited true stories from Fringe artists and put together and excellent 90 minute show. This year they did it again. The 5 artists told stories from their lives traveling and living the lives of artists on the road. A sixth artist, an accordion player, provided top notch entertainment before and between the five stories. We all were impressed.
