You are cordially invited to participate in a Community storytelling event, co-hosted by INQUIRE WITHIN Productions and The Maskers at Basil Burwell Theatre. Come listen to locals tell stories and/or share your own. This is the culminating event of the Belonging through Regional Storytelling Workshop, led by Jerry Stropnicky. Participants have been exploring applications of story work in personal storytelling, community empowerment and regional exploration, connecting personal storytelling with larger community stories.

Workshop leader Gerard Stropnicky brings a wealth of experience in story, and more than forty years as a multi-faceted theatre professional. In addition to teaching story workshops, he writes and directs large-scale, site-specific productions featuring community casts, accessing local stories that address intractable issues within the community in Appalachia, the Deep South and Pennsylvania. He has also worked in communities in Rwanda and northern Uganda. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, published by Baker’s Play’s/Samuel French and Touchstone/Simon and Schuster, was culled from 200 years of letters to local newspapers. Gerard was a co-founder of Network of Ensemble Theaters. He also co-founded Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble (BTE), where he directed and performed for 35 years. He was named United States Artists Lowe Fellow in Theater in 2010.
