Join Big Blue Door this Saturday, August 28th for an early evening under the breeze-cooled awning of Cardinal Point Winery. It’s our final Summer Story Saturdays of the summer in beautiful Afton, Virginia with true stories inspired by the theme of ‘Escape’.

We have seven wonderful storytellers, both newcomers, veterans from our classes, and returnees from our early Big Blue Door Jams. All are sharing new stories of escapes, tales of breakouts, getaways, evasions, and vanishings!

Pay What You Will!

Cardinal Point offers a variety of delicious beverages and snacks and audience members are welcome to bring their own food as well!

Ryan Wender has performed in both Big Blue Door story shows and improv shows. He works in health care but his story is about child care!

Anthropology professor Clare Terni is another audience favorite from our Big Blue Door Jams in 2012 and 2013.
