On Thursday, September 22 Maurice Peret, a Greater Baltimore chapter member, will be participating in a story telling event, which is free to the public. He will be sharing his experiences with Erik Weihenmayer's climb to Mount Everest . Erik was the first blind person to climb the highest mountain in the world and Maurice was part of the base camp support team.

Join us for a free show in Center Plaza on Thursday, 9/22 at 5:30 p.
In this outdoor performance we'll feature tales about confronting and overcoming obstacles to achievement. Storytellers include participants in The Black Male Identity Project, who will share experiences about challenges in the black male community.
*Center Plaza is located between Charles & Liberty St., and between Lexington & Fayette St. (Where the old & new BGE building is. Also on the plaza: Brick Bodies Fitness Club & Kings Garden Café) (Because it apparently rains 9 out of every 10 days now, it may very well pour.

About the Stoop
Stories of love, death, revenge, forgiveness. Failures small and large. Double-crossing and two-timing. Shame and success. Epiphanies that happen just in time...and others that don't. Blood, sweat and tears--and lots of laughs. Each Stoop show features seven storytellers who get seven minutes each to tell a true, personal story about a specific theme. No notes, no scripts, no actors--just true stories, artfully told.
Stoop storytellers are writers, dog-walkers, scientists, poets, moms, manicurists, museum directors, waitresses, TV hosts, taxi drivers...and you! During each Stoop show, a few lucky audience members get the chance to tell three-minute stories on stage. And The Stoop is always looking for storytellers for upcoming shows. If you've got an idea for a story or a theme, send a few brief sentences about it to info at stoopstorytelling.com<mailto:info at stoopstorytelling.com>.
