The monthly storytelling series Rabbit Box presents its 13th installment of narratives for adult ears with the theme “Guns: A True Story from my Life.” Eight locals—Michele Chidester, Jeffrey Henderson, David Kulniszewski, Maureen McLaughlin, Kate Morrissey, Kerry Steinberg, Ivan Sumner and Marty Winkler—will each share a meaningful eight-minute vignette onstage, collectively offering insight into the many ways firearms affect society. A ninth “crackerjack” storyteller, whose name will be drawn during the intermission, will also share an impromptu story. Because views on fiercely debated issues like gun control are often shaped by an individual’s personal history, a platform like Rabbit Box creates an intimate community forum for heart-to-heart discussion. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. (arrive earlier if you’d like to order dinner), and entry is $5. Audiocasts of past performances are available online, so bookmark www.rabbitbox.org for your next rainy day activity.
