Words by Spalding Gray,
concept by Kathleen Russo, directed by Lucy Sexton
and performed by a four-person ensemble
and a local guest reader

One of the most revered and irreverent storytellers of our time, Spalding Gray became an indelible image: sitting alone at a desk on a bare stage, delivering hilarious and moving monologues. But what made Gray’s performances so memorable and timeless was the universal way that his words —– the observations, neuroses, fears and joys that they expressed — resonate so deeply with audiences. His work lives on in this funny, poignant and ultimately life-affirming play.

Stories Left to Tell appeals to longtime Gray fans as well as newcomers to his work. The play was co-conceived by Kathleen Russo, Gray’s widow, and Lucy Sexton, who have assembled excerpts from both renowned and never-before-seen work, including diary extracts and other unpublished writing, to span the artist’s extraordinary life and career.
