Keeping Faith: Three Sisters of Story

Keeping Faith: Three Sisters of Story

On February 12 from 7 to 8:30pm at the Hartford Seminary, three storytellers will share stories from their own faiths—Christian, Muslim and Jewish—to transcend differences through a shared belief in the power of compassion and connection.

Rohina Malik, a critically acclaimed playwright, returns to Hartford Seminary for this new show. She is a resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists and an artistic associate at the 16th Street Theater. Malik’s plays, The Mecca Tales and Yasmina’s Necklace, were both nominated for a Jeff Award for best new work. Her one-woman play, Unveiled, has been widely produced, including at Hartford Seminary.

 

Susan Stone, a storyteller and teaching artist, has performed around the country and in Poland, telling Jewish tales for adults and children at schools, synagogues, museums and festivals. She also coaches storytellers. Stone’s CDs have earned Parents’ Choice Gold and Storytelling World Awards. She is founder/co-director of the Evanston Public Library Storytelling Festival.

Kim Schultz is a writer, actor, storyteller, improviser and refugee advocate. In 2009, she traveled to the Middle East as an artist/activist to meet with Iraqi refugees, falling in love with one and turning their stories and her own into a critically acclaimed solo play, No Place Called Home, and the memoir Three Days in Damascus. Schultz acts at professional theaters, such as The Goodman Theatre and Lookingglass, and is also a corporate improvisation trainer and a director of artist residencies in Mexico.

Tickets are $15 for general admission in advance, and $20 at the door. Hartford Seminary student tickets are $5 with ID. Tickets for groups of eight or more are $10 each.
