Rabbit Box is a storytelling collective that invites locals to share true personal stories around a given theme. Stories can range from humorous and uplifting to intense and moving. This show’s theme is grief, and it is co-sponsored with deATH Café, a local organization that supports individuals dealing with grief and loss. Storytellers include Debra Brenner, a board member of the Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement and a leader in the deaf community; Melia Cogan, a local poet, musician and artist; Elsa Durusau, a music librarian at UGA; Kat Farlowe, a graphic designer and producer of the Vagina Monologues; Mary Joyce, executive director of AthFest Educates; Gary Nason, an Athens resident since 1987; Sean Polite, a WUGA host, actor and voiceover artist; and Caroline Singletary, a facilitator for the deATH Café. This will be Rabbit Box’s final show before a summer break, to return on Sept. 26.
