Storyline: Brave New World

In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, the characters and the reader are faced with some pretty big, existential questions. What makes us humans human? Is happiness as simple as a mix of chemicals that can be easily popped in pill-form? Is the secret to a perfect world simply determining people’s roles in society before they’re born? We’re not sure if the talented local storytellers participating in Storyline: Brave New World will be answering these questions, but we’re sure they’ll be spinning yarn just as entertaining and thought-provoking. As a more structured, polished response to Lawn Gnome Publishing’s popular, weekly Yarnball, Dan Hull created the once-a-month storytelling series Storyline last year. Storyline: Brave New World marks the first event of 2015 on Friday, January 16, at 10:30 p.m. at Space 55, 636 East Pierce Street. Tickets at $5 and can be purchased at the door.
