Presented by the Gloucester Writer’s Center – Real stories, told by the storyteller, live at Gloucester Stage.

Fish Tales started out as an idea – a local storytelling program at the Gloucester Writers Center, because at heart every writer is a storyteller. True stories, remembered by the storyteller, live. Our storytellers are ready to share funny and honest moments, and our enthusiastic audience reminds us that it is a joy and privilege to sit and listen to someone else’s life for a while.

Tickets are $25 and donations accepted at the door. No one turned away from lack of funds.
