About this Event

Biddeford is seeing tremendous change: some planned, some accidental. In order to incorporate the ideas, concerns and dreams of the broadest cross-section of the community as possible, Heart of Biddeford has invited True Story Theater back to town. They will help us tell and hear Biddeford's stories at two separate events.

This first event on October 19 will focus on the keepers of Biddeford's Legacy-- that is, the elders of our community, people who have lived in or built Biddeford over a long period of time (sometimes generations).

The second event, held on Nov. 16th, will focus on Visions from Youth and Newcomers --hearing from tomorrow's leaders and people who are newer to town.

True Story Theater uses a style of improvisation theater called Playback Theatre in which audience or group members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot. By inviting people to share their stories and transforming them spontaneously into theater, True Story Theater‘s mission promotes social healing. At a time of growing division in our country, True Story Theater offers audiences fresh perspectives, deeper connections, and a renewed appreciation for our common humanity.
