Coming soon to Story Slam: Aphasia

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 5:16 PM

For two days (March 5 & 6), Story Slam presents readings of local director, actor and writer Jim Gloster’s Aphasia. The screenplay is a true story about the overwhelming ordeal local actor Carl McIntyre endures after suffering a massive stroke and thus developing aphasia (a communication disorder that impairs the ability to understand and communicate properly). Though it sounds heavy in subject matter, this story is an eye opener (and tear jerker) both to the damage that health problems can entail and the ability to cope and overcome them. McIntyre will be present for the readings and post-show discussions. Free, but reservations need to be made here. Starts at 8 p.m. Story Slam is located at 1401 Central Ave., Ste. 103.
