Event Details

BRUNSWICK ARTISTS BAR // DOORS 6.30PM // SHOW 7PM

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.
