True Stories: Mary Corbett on "Supernatural" (VIDEO)

Have you ever thought you heard voices? Storytellers at True Stories' "Supernatural" edition are sure they have. Here's Mary Corbett, telling you all about it.

Halloween conjures spirits, and most especially, spirited storytelling. Our October show featured many cringeworthy tales, but this was one of our favorites. Mary Corbett didn't try to make it especially creepy, but it turned out that way — with a short, sharp shock at the end. Wait for it.


Anyone with a story to tell and the guts to get up and share it has a chance to be on our stage, where we pick names at random. We also feature a curated story.  

The next True Stories is Wednesday, Nov. 9 at Old Key West Bar & Grill, and our featured storyteller will be none other than Creative Loafing's own A&E editor, and author of Backroads of Paradise: A Journey to Re-Discover Old Florida. In honor of the upcoming holidays, our November theme will be food. Tell us about that time your family gathered for the big meal, only to discover the dog just ate the main dish. Or that time you tried to impress your new crush with your culinary skills. Then there was that time you got food poisoning but had a non-negotiable day at work. You get the idea. Food, we’ve all been there.
