In response to our community’s interest in writing and performing their own stories, Seattle Rep’s Public Works partnered with Macha Theatre Works and their 17 Minute Stories process. Macha Theatre Works artists led six months of workshop culminating in A Festival of Personal Stories at West of Lenin. Participants performed their 10-minute heartfelt, hilarious, and uplifting stories of resilience, reflection, and growth. Performers include: Aarti Tiwari, Ann Marie Yoder, Cynthia Linet, Diane Ste. Marie, Dolores Maria Rossman, Dragonsong, Jenjen Douglass, Lynn Hautala, Patricia Dehart and Roslyn Schley.
