Virtual Event: The Flame: Scary Stories Edition

This Halloween, tune in for a night of Scary Stories from a variety of accomplished, local storytellers, hosted by award-winning actor and one of the creators of Mom's the Word, Deborah Williams. The Flame is a sold-out monthly storytelling event, celebrating its 12th season. Well known in the Vancouver storytelling community for being a sizzling storytelling series, The Flame features personal, true stories shared with a live audience. This past June, Deborah won the Gordon Armstrong Playwright’s Rent Award for co-founding and coordinating The Flame. Her work in this Vancouver storytelling series was cited for continuing to provide “a marvellous, joy-filled resource… [and] celebrates the essential power of the liveness of theatre.”
