A trouble walks into a bar: Re-storying life between stand up and therapy

Re-storying our lives through stand-up comedy is a laughing matter. It frames the importance of stories and comedy to help us witness how the jokes and stories we tell of our past and present can very much help us restore our lives.

Please join us for a performance and discussion about how important play, comedy and storytelling are in this restorative process. Compered and facilitated by the incredible Susan Morrison.

This event is part of the Scottish Government’s Firestarter Festival and is a partnership between with the Edinburgh Futures Institute, Real Talk, and the Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry.
