Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival
Cape Clear is Ireland’s southernmost inhabited island situated 8 miles off the coast of Baltimore in West Cork. The stunning scenery, folklore and uniqueness of the island’s flora and fauna truly make Cape Clear a place apart.
The Cape Clear Island International Storytelling Festival is now in its 20th year, and has become one of the most renowned festivals in the world storytelling calendar. Each year we invite some of the most accomplished tellers from around the world, and also present the best Irish exponents of this most ancient of art forms to a world audience.
An Evening with Storyteller Kevin Kling
Wednesday, June 4, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Wisdom Ways
What do we do with loss, intense suffering, and the focused anger that arises out of loss that can’t be cured and only healed?
Kevin Kling knows the desolate inner experience of living with PTSD from an accident that nearly killed him. He has reflected on how the three phases of prayer in his life (from praying to get things, to praying to get out of things, to gratitude) have allowed for him to find “a blessing in my curses every day.”
A good code of conduct for confronting violence may well be Kevin’s words of wisdom, “When you’re laughing at something, it can’t control you.” He helps us to “find solace in mystery through storytelling.” Join us for this engaging evening of laughter and storytelling connected to our theme by a man who has experienced life deeply.

Prudence Johnson is well known for her silky-smooth voice and jazzy interpretations of songs. Kevin Kling has been a constant presence as a storyteller on MPR and stages across the country for years, and he’ll be bringing his trademark wit and observation of the everyday. And T. Mychael Rambo’s voice is unmistakable. His rich baritone has led Penumbra Theater’s “Black Nativity” for years, and he was featured on SteppingStone Theatre’s CD “No Picnic Being Cheese,” that Prudence produced for us a few years ago.
All of this amazing talent on one stage, and an opportunity for you to support SteppingStone Theatre’s important work with Twin Cities children and youth. It will be an evening not to miss!
Tickets for the event are $45 of which, $30 is a tax-deductible donation to SteppingStone Theatre. For this reason, there are no member, student, or senior discounts.
