So This One Time... opens on Saturday, April 9th

So This One Time...
...a show about awkward situations.

Over the last several months, Katie Coleman and Jane Garver have been collaborating with each other and many other people trying to collect the best stories about “bad” situations. All of the work in their show started with a true conversation or event, because true yet unbelievable stories are the most memorable.

The stories they tell range from the mundane to the ridiculous, often utilizing image and text to blur the lines between storytelling and visual art.

They will turn MINT into a staged home interior to house their strange cast of characters, and to give old stories a new context. To be clear, they are decidedly pro-awkward, highlighting how funny little memories or strange moments can be re-used to make a new shared experience.
