004. The Call (Part II)

The Yarn is excited to announce a new storytelling event focused on the lived experiences of those impacted by adoption. This show was a special partnership between the Arkansas Repertory Theatre and The Yarn. Community members took the stage in January 2017 to share true stories. 

The Call: True Stories of Adoption podcast features stories from Arkansans and members of the cast of the Arkansas Repertory Theater's production of The Call, a play about a couple attempting to adopt a baby from Africa. All storytellers have been affected by adoption in some manner, whether if be adopting or being adopted and have a range of perspectives and experiences. This show took place at the Arkansas Repertory Theater's education annex in downtown Little Rock, AR. 

This is the second in a three-part series.
