Too Much Information
"I hope this isn't TMI, but..." How many times have we all been on either end of a conversation that began that way? For some reason, sharing TMI "Too Much Information" tends to be a guilty pleasure for both divulger and divulgee. On both ends, there's something incredibly cathartic and connective about revealing our deepest and darkest. We are inclined to believe it's actually good for us all, so no reason to feel guilty. That's the philosophy behind TMI, our production of non-fiction monologues written by the men and women who perform them.
The personal is universal, and by sharing the parts of stories many of us typically leave out for public consumption our writers/performers help to reveal common threads in all our lives. The secret parts are the ones we most long to share and hear. In telling and hearing them, we get connected. In our experience, storyteller and viewer alike leave the show with a new understanding of their experiences, and a new openness. We've heard on many occasions that audience members share juicy morsels in car rides home that they never would have discussed otherwise.
We aim to get women and men from all walks of life crafting and telling the stories that have been burning in their souls while they've been afraid or ashamed to share publicly. We foster with the belief that knowing we all share similarly difficult secrets increases our compassion for one another; in our communities and in the world.
