For the 2017 holidays, Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales) is bringing it #CloseToHome! Wrapped up special, this show will open eyes, warm hearts, and tickle funny bones. On Tuesday, December 19 at 8 p.m., our seven storytellers will deliver the goods better than Amazon Prime. From fleeing persecution to fighting a takeover, from battling intruders to overcoming viral videos, and from finding a family to finding oneself—“Close To Home” explores and celebrates the human experience. ‘Tis the season, so make plans now to join us in the stunningly decorated Dallas Arts District and rejoice!
Christmas comes but once a year, and so do storytellers like this: U.S. congressional candidate Lorie Burch finds her voice, identity, and purpose. Seventeen-year-old Rooha Haghar spends the summer at the agency that helped save her family’s lives. When a burglar alarm wails one night, Coleman Easley, then 17, helps search for the “intruder.” Writer Tara Humphrey struggles and triumphs through marriage, children, and loss. When an edited video goes viral, art teacher Maya Modi’s life is turned upside down. Tasked with running his family’s 100-year-old company, Greg Miller steps up to the plate. Adman Jim “Wegs” Wegerbauer receives a letter, setting off a chain of events that all lead to one place—home.
