Evanston resident Jack Gehringer is one of nine cast members – each with a disability – telling their stories, which range from touching to hilarious, in “Tellin’ Tales Theatre Presents: Divercity.”
Mr. Gehringer made his debut with Tellin’ Tales in 2003 in “Six Stories Up in Pediatrics” and is a current member of the Ensemble. Tellin’ Tales Theatre’s mission is to shatter barriers between the disabled and non-disabled worlds through the transformative power of personal story.
Artistic Director Tekki Lomnicki developed and directed the stories with the performers over a six-week Zoom master class. Through May 23, “Tellin’ Tales Theatre Presents: Divercity” is available virtually on Vimeo. Information and tickets are available at www.tellintales.org.
