On Saturday, February 8, storytellers from Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights came together at the Breen Performing Arts Center at St. Ignatius High School to share ideas on the art of storytelling with the Cleveland community. The Late Winter Storytelling Festival was put on by Beacon Street Performing Arts in Ministry, which is directed by Bob Kloos, one of the five co-founders of the nonprofit.

WordplayWordplay is an offbeat mix of poetry, comedy, and an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of the spoken word. Wordplay's opening monologue blends music and language (and sometimes sound effects) into a surreal, funny, often darkly serious meditation on the state of one man's struggles to live in the bewildering world of contemporary America. The show also features guest appearances by local poets and nationally known writers. But the real strength of Wordplay is the interaction between co-hosts George Bilgere and John Donoghue. The two poets read short, interesting poems by important writers. They banter about poetry, argue about it, and generally give each other a hard time. A Plain Dealer article about Wordplay called the show "the Click and Clack of poetry." Not a bad description.
