Love Stories: Adapted and Performed by Master Storyteller Denise McCormack

Experience the soulful grip of love stories, the tug of candor and reflection. Each poignant and thought-provoking tale relates to women's issues and relationships.  They are our stories.

Philadelphia, PA – Master Storyteller Denise McCormack brings Love Stories, her one-woman show of carefully crafted tales, to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival on Saturday, September 8, at Artworks Trenton, 19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ, at 3 PM and on Thursday, September 13, at the Center for Art in Wood, 141 N. 3rd Street, Phila., PA, at 7 PM. Tickets are Pay-What-You-Wish, range from $0 to a recommended $15, and available at https://denisemccormack.live and www.FringeArts.com

McCormack's soulful performance of Love Stories premiered during Philly Theatre Week 2017 to rave reviews and has since been featured at various local and national venues. 

Each vignette highlights the dynamic nature of relationships and reflects the emotional turmoil that is interwoven in the choices and circumstances of our being, especially those related to women's issues, of motherhood and family, of love and loss.

“The stories spoke to me,” says McCormack, “They seemed as if they could have truly been written by me, by anyone of us, even though they were written hundreds of years ago, and they touched my heart. These are not romantic stories of love; they are stories of our deepest natures and souls. They are stories that connect us and allow us to see into one another’s lives for understanding and empathy, for validation.”

According to Katie Sorenson, development and events manager at The Center for Art in Wood, “Denise McCormack approaches each story in detail, breathing life into them in such a way that captivates the audience. It is a wonderfully unique experience, and we highly recommend attending one of Denise McCormack’s performances.” 

McCormack, who has been telling professionally for more than a decade, presents programs throughout the tri-state area, and is deeply committed to sharing the benefits of storytelling in a broad spectrum of applications—from education and community to business, health, and well-being. 

Among her many roles in storytelling, McCormack is the NJ state liaison for the National Storytelling Network, co-chair of the NJ Storytelling Festival, president of the Patchwork Storytelling Guild in Philadelphia, and an active member of various other local and national organizations wherein storytelling plays an integral role.

McCormack's mantra: There is a story for every time and purpose under heaven.

Tickets are available through the day of the show.
