Coming Of Age (An Open Mic + Reading)
Whats your coming of age story? Is it celebrating your sweet sixteen sitting on the fire escape stairs with your friend who is also a stranger? Is it realizing that your life is a performance you didnt sign up for? Or is it being terrified but comforted that you dont belong no where and everywhere? Join us on Monday the 16th at 6:30pm to cry, chuckle, and celebrate the intricacies of character development.
