About This Series
When’s the last time you heard a story that made you smile, laugh, think...or cry? Welcome to Stories from the Stage! From ordinary people with extraordinary experiences, these real stories are tales of love, heartbreaking loss, unexpected triumph, facing fears, leaving home or coming to America. Hosted by storytellers Theresa Okokon and Wes Hazard, each episode offers stories focused on a single universal theme - from “Can’t Pick Your Family,” “Fresh Start” and “Eureka!” to “Didn’t See It Coming.” Before performances, each teller reflects on their own stories and why they tell them. Stories can bring us together, breaking down barriers to reveal what we all have in common.
Everyone has a story to share. What's yours? Share your story #storiesfromthestage.
Stories from the Stage is a collaboration of WORLD Channel, WGBH Events, and Massmouth.
Lost & Found Part 2
We lose all sorts of things. But when we find things unexpectedly, it can seem like a miracle. Anna’s spilled coffee reunites a family separated; a leather jacket connects Scott to one of his childhood idols; and Ewa loses a sausage to airport security, but discovers a secret. Three storytellers, three interpretations of Lost & Found.
It's All Relative
Family. Sometimes they choose us, sometimes we choose them. Anoush tries out the party life and finds her family waiting when she crashes; Jerry and his wife become foster parents, and face disaster on day one; and George pranks his overprotective mother with red ink. Three storytellers, three interpretations of "It's All Relative."
Lost & Found Part 1
There’s nothing worse than losing something precious. And nothing more satisfying than finding that lost something. Richard learns that the best teacher is a student; Rosanna discovers that friendship can cross borders; and Jim finds himself in the blue iris of his eye's replacement. Three storytellers, three interpretations of Lost & Found.
