A bushfire on the New South Wales Coast. A theatrical fight between sisters. A dish of stuffed capsicums goes horribly wrong.

Backyard Stories is born from a passion for storytelling. It is an event which creates a space for both established and novice storytellers to respond to a pre-selected prompt in the form of a short story. This is then performed in front of an engaging crowd, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. From our origins in 2019, squeezing friends and friends of friends into a Carlton backyard, surviving a pandemic through podcast format, Backyard Stories has evolved. In 2021 we have found a new home at Brunswick Artists Bar.

The stories are as relatable as they are unique - and range from the funny and dramatic to the heartfelt and intimate. Emulating New York's The Moth with an Australian flair, Backyard Stories is a platform to share, listen and engage. Anyone and everyone is invited - to write, perform, attend or listen. Grab a drink. Find a spot. Settle in.


Due to current Covid restrictions shows will be seated and limited per sitting. 

Please note: Tables cannot be joined together on the evening. Please ensure everyone you wish to seat at your table is included in your booking to avoid being seated separately. Ideally if you can arrive together at the same time, that will help with seating you all together.
