Liars' League - Us and Them

Liars' League is a themed monthly fiction night, where professional actors read new short stories by writers from around the world. The stories this month feature baby rats, traumatised soldiers, uppity moths, self-consuming metafiction, 80s action figures, and a very sinister housing committee. No narrator is too unusual, no story too strange for our Us & Them event, as we hand over the mike to collective voices, extraordinary viewpoints and life-or-death clashes and connections.

We (i.e., people who have run and participated in events at La Paloma Sabanera over the years) are marking this occasion with a bit of sadness but also with a big party on Wednesday, June 26, from 6pm to 11:30.

The Real Secrets Show presents engaging comedic storytelling from some of Toronto's finest performers, offering up stories of secrets they've kept and the impact they've had on their lives. Audience members and performers alike mask their identity and sign binding non-disclosure agreements at the door to create a safe circle of sharing.
