Storytelling event in Stonington

STONINGTON — Opera House Arts’ “Island Women Speak,” the popular women’s storytelling event at the Stonington Opera House, is coming back for a new iteration on Friday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m.

The event features six women from six generations of Deer Isle residents with six personal stories — told live from the stage. The event will be performed for a live in-person audience and livestreamed for those who cannot make the event in-person.

The evening’s theme will be “Advice to my younger self.” The six speakers will each perform a five-minute personal story they have written on the topic, revealing truths about their lives on the island. The project is based on New York City’s Generation Women, a monthly event that features female authors and storytellers from each decade, as well as on The Moth, a nonprofit group based in New York City that is dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling.

Tickets are $20.
