stories left to tell

“Vividly funny. joyous, devastating, affecting, gorgeous…a breathing portrait.” – Ben Brantley, New York Times

“Fresh, engaging, moving, powerful. Gray’s words not only relate the story of his own life, they allow a new group of artists to reflect on what being alive can mean.” – Mark Blankenship, Variety

Stories Left to Tell catapults us into the hilarious and heartbreaking life and words of one of the most revered storytellers of our time. A five-person ensemble performs Spalding Gray’s legendary stories and monologues—interwoven with previously unpublished material from his letters and journals. As Backstage put it: “Gray was a funny funny man; this show is a gift.”
