THE THEME OF THE NIGHT IS “FAR FROM HOME”

we sold out! Thanks everyone!

Adventurous ladies roam. This month’s theme invites our storytellers to recall time they were far from home. This might be literal distance from home base — an overseas vacation, year abroad, the experience of moving for college or their first job. Or this might be a metaphorical distance — getting far from the person they really are, losing sight of their values and sense of self. Maybe they’ll dive deep or maybe they’ll just make us laugh. Whatever they choose to share, humorous or heartfelt, we know it’s going to inspire and delight.

You can expect our usual blend of heart-warming and hilarious, raw and real stories from ladies of all ages.
