An Evening of Storytelling for Women and Fierce Allies of Women

“They wear cloaks and they carry candles, but there are no spells or potions. They create magic with words by telling stories.” -Los Angeles Magazine

Under a summer sky, lit by the full moon, join producer and performer Trish Nelson in a vow: “I am here tonight to pledge my support to my fellow sisters.” And then the storytelling begins! Nelson, who has put together live shows and tours across the country for Key & Peele, Broad City, Amy Schumer, and many others, brings her West Coast sensation, The Secret Society of the Sisterhood to Brooklyn. The theme of the evening is: “So…That Happened.” Prepare yourself for true tales that are sincerely heartfelt and often hilarious!
