Hey, Y'all!

We have an exciting season planned for 2015 and we want you to be a part of it! Are you a minority, trans, disabled, or anyone with a different perspective? Are you a pro at sharing stories? Are you scared because you've never done anything like this? We love all of those things and WE WANT YOU! EVERYONE is welcome!  The only thing that is required is that you have a story that you're excited about sharing. Put together a story submission that fits the theme below... 

submission deadline:  October 2

show dates:  November 21, 28 & December 5
show location:  the very fancy and famous Mayne Stage Theatre in Rogers Park

What should a submission be?  What does that theme even mean? YOU decide. YOU are the star. All we want is a brave, bold and revealing story from YOU about YOU.  Does that sound like something you can do? (The answer is YES). Your submission should be a complete non-fiction story and about 1,200 words (8-10 minutes) in length. 

Still have questions?  Email us at
We want to help you succeed and we want you in our show.

See you soon!
The YBR Team

submissions should be emailed to by the deadline listed above
