Confabulation presents: Down to the Wire

Confabulation is back from summer vacation, with Down to the Wire — stories of split seconds, spontaneous choices, and living in the moment.

Six-more true-life stories, from six true-life storytellers.

It’s happening on Saturday August 16th, 2014 at Montreal Improv Theatre, at a special time 7pm!

Still Pay What You Can!

After that, we’ll back back to the first Saturday of every month, at the beautiful Mainline Theatre.

Here’s the Facebook event, please spread the word!


Confabulation presents The Shortest Story IV: Get Shorter.

CONFABULATION fans — you can’t miss this. Montreal’s premier all true storytelling series brings you ALL of the stories. Every Nuit Blanche, we put away the details, and pull out the stop watch for a special night of 31 short stories — all two minutes or less.

Short stories are not hyperspeed narratives — we tend to see a wide range of vignettes, moments of note, intriguing scenes from peoples lives, around a wide range of themes.

We start at 8 PM — so you still have plenty of time to get to your other Nuit Blanche activities. And MainLine‘s bar will be open, to better prep you for an evening of all night galleries, dancing, and city exploration.

Confabulation presents: Tell the Family

Ladies and Gentlemen.

Once upon a Confab event,
Rules were laid out and rarely bent.
No notes, no props, no gimmicks, or tricks
(Though occasionally a few rule breakers are allowed in the mix.)
Stories must be told, and they must be true,
Above all, they should have happened to you.

But upon our annual holiday show,
We hear that story that happened to your bro.
Or that grandparent caught in war,
Whose experiences shaped your very core.
Our stories are still shared, but so too the tales of our relative,
Passed down the tree, if not one that we did live.

We’ve had great tales of ocean travel,
And Jewish Christmases, and psychic Dads, and other babble.
The stories remain true as can be told,
But with our parents stories, we may now be bold.
The goal is the same — share who we are,
But with fewer prescriptions, they may go far,
To explore not just who you grew up to be,
But how we are shaped — by choice, by act, and by family.

Submissions now open for Confabulation presents: Tell the Family.

Stories can be your own, or those you inherit.

Send all submissions to or fill out the form here.
