Review: True Stories Live at Norwich Arts Centre

Hurray! Norwich's own storytelling night, True Stories Live, is one year old.
Anyone can come along and tell their tale at this monthly bash at Norwich Arts Centre (provided they send an email first).
Events are shaped by particular themes, this one was no regrets, next time will be leaving home.
The style is confessional - people to stick to the truth, and material flirts round the edges of what's normally kept private. But there's no feel of the voyeur for the audience. It's a supportive atmosphere to unlock life's truths, and an affirmation of identity; we are what we tell.
Local writer and performer Molly Naylor fronts up the night (you may know Naylor from Sit Com After Hours on Sky 1). For this special anniversary celebration, she was joined by stand-up and author Sara Pascoe and indie acoustic guitar man Gavin Osborn (gosh he's good).
