                                          Theme:  Family Stories

                                                 4 members of the Lorenzoni family telling

                                               stories about, what else, "family." But two

                                     will be lying. Plus, dad will be doing magic between their stories. $5 admission.          

 The Liar's Game provides a delightful evening of storytelling at 7 p.m. on the 2nd Monday of the Month  at the Empire Game Library (3503 Central in Albuquerque's Nob Hill.  This event is produced by STNM member, Barry Simon, in association with the Empire Board Game Library.  Usually three presenters each tell a ten minute story, followed by questions from the audience to determine which of the three tellers is not telling the truth - which is the "liar!"  At only $5.00 admission, this is a bargain for a fun evening out on the town.  Learn how you, too, can become a storyteller at this event by contacting Barry Simon, 505-254-7716 .

 A brief audition is required.  Come early as seating is limited and you don't want to miss the pre-event game planned at 6:45 p.m.!


STNM's own, Kimberly Gotches, Sarah Malone, George Williams, Rick Berg, Nash Jones, Alan Kinner, Kathy Sax, and Bob Kanegis are now official members of the Liars' Game Repertory Company of Storytellers which is the brainstorm of new STNM member  and producer, Barry Simon!  Contact Barry if you are interested in becoming a Liars' Game teller!
