Presented by Walking Shadow Theatre Company
Imagine the worst breakup ever. No: even worse than that. Revel in the absurd fears, tender hopes, and unrealized fantasies that make us act like idiots. This charming show about love and its many catastrophes is probably appropriate for a date. Or not. It depends on the date.
Walking Shadow produced 21 Extremely Bad Breakups in 2018.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Have you ever imagined a world whose laws of physics differed from our own? In our current dystopian future, the Not-So-Silent Planet is entering cyberspace. Listen to some of the most frequent contributors to the country's only recurring open-mic dedicated to speculative fiction: fantasy, sci-fi, or supernatural horror!
It's the season of love...but love of what? This is the time for stories of everything not quite human: of fantastical, chimerical beasts, or of beings sprung from wholly other evolutionary trees. Featuring original fiction by regulars Vu Dang, Michael Merriam, Margo Prescott, and Damian Sheridan, with up-and-coming playwright Nissa Nordland as our special guest teller! Tune in, and hear about places of which you've never dreamt.
WARNING: while we appreciate the importance of safe spaces, we also appreciate the importance of unsafe spaces, in which writers can experiment with edgier material. None of the stories are screened, and performers may present adult content. We’re free-speech absolutists, and recognize that that occasionally comes at an uncomfortable price.
Growing poetry and storytelling one word at a time, Word Sprout is based in Minneapolis and specializes in producing and capturing Live Literature at its finest. We are committed to providing both open forums and curated stages for people to embrace and share the words that are most important to them in storytelling, poetry, and genre bending verbal explosions.
PRAISE FOR THE NOT-SO-SILENT PLANET
"It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that ultra-hip MPLS + STPL has an open mic night dedicated to...sci-fi, fantasy, tales of the supernatural and such. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that the quality of the material is higher than an H.G. Wells zeppelin."
- Hitara, Secrets of the City
"...that was some delightfully trippy shit...mind-bendingly strange and fun...they burrow into your mind and keep you thinking about them long after they’re done."
- Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek
