WordPlay: A new spin on storytelling

WordPlay is a new spin on the age-old tradition of storytelling. With brazen honesty and creativity, actors, comedy writers, and everyday people read their own stories while our DJ spins a real-time soundtrack using anything from Brahms to Beyoncé. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll get an extremely intimate look into the life of a total stranger.

Photos of wordplay storytellers Melanie Dione, Hannah Brizzi, and Alan Olifson appear in frames that resemble speech bubbles. Text reads: WordPlay. March 8-9 | July 19-20 | November 15-16.

This hybrid storytelling sensation has been growing in popularity since its co-producer, Alan Olifson, brought it to Pittsburgh over 4 years ago. With its steadily growing audience and frequent media buzz, WordPlay has become a staple of Pittsburgh’s literary and theater scene.
