A Not-So-Silent Night

a sci-fi storytelling circus


"My beerdrunk soul is sadder than all the dead Christmas trees of the world."

- Charles Bukowski, Factotum

Praise for "The Not-So-Silent Planet"


"It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that ultra-hip MPLS + STPL has an open mic night dedicated to...sci-fi, fantasy, tales of the supernatural and such. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that the quality of the material is higher than an H.G. Wells zeppelin."
- Hitara, Secrets of the City

"...that was some delightfully trippy shit...mind-bendingly strange and fun...they burrow into your mind and keep you thinking about them long after they're done."
Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek

"...definitely in the grand tradition of short-story writing in the genre...if you like story-telling events, don't miss this one. Seriously. Just...don't."
"I love audio books. I love science fiction and fantasy stories. I love really good storytellers. I loved this show."
"...helps you to see that there are many possibilities in this vast universe of ours."
- five-star audience reviews (from the Minnesota Fringe Festival)
