David Lawson has spent the last decade talking to anyone who will listen. 

Now, you can catch him hosting an evening of true stories about the borough told by a group of Queens-based storytellers. 

Lawson has performed one-man shows across the country and on popular storytelling outlets like Kevin Allison's "RISK!", "Mortified," and Mara Wilson's "What Are You Afraid Of?" He has shared the stage with performers from "Saturday Night Live," "Last Week Tonight" and "The Daily Show."

Closer to home he has served as host of the Astoria Bookshop Storytelling for the past five years. 

Queens Storytellers include: Sandi Marx, The Moth; Tracey Starin, QED; Christopher Moncavo-Torres, Ecuadorian American Culture Center; Melissa Gordon, UCB; and Darin Patterson, Park Slope Comedy Festival. 

The show will also include an open mic portion when audience members can tell their own five-minute true Queens story on the Theatre's story. 

Saturday, Sept. 28, 8pm in the Queens Theatre Cabaret. FREE

Recommended for ages 14 and up.

With this show I want a storytelling show equivalent of overhearing a really great conversation on the 7 train.
