“Writing on the Wall”



What does it mean?

the likelihood that something bad will happen (source The Free Dictionary).

How can you get in on it?

We’re currently prepping our second to last show of the season. Editor and director Nicole Stewart is looking for our next seven storytellers, who she’ll help find the truthiest truths to share on stage in March. The theme is “Writing on the Wall.” We need true-life tales where disaster seemed all but unavoidable. Are you an anonymous graffiti artist? Do your kids ever literally write on your walls? Have you ever provided expert handwriting analysis in a highly publicized court case? Tell us about it!

To share your incredible “Writing on the Wall” story with the Oral Fixation audience, send in your story ASAP. The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 20, at 6 p.m. The show will take place March 16, at the Wyly Theatre, and March 25, at The Texas Theatre.

Need a little inspiration? Check out this cool GoPro footage of muralist Jessica Sabogal tackling her biggest project to date. Of course, you don’t have to literally write on walls to be a terrific Oral Fixation performer.
