Grown-Up Story Time (GUST) at Rudyard’s British Pub on Waugh entertains bar patrons every third Tuesday of the month. GUST is hosted by BooTown, a nonprofit arts company, founded in 2007, whose mission to create theatre through a collaborative process. BooTown’s artistic director, Emily Hynds, says that Grown-Up Story Time has become a staple in the Houston community.
Tomorrow night, August 21, and every third Tuesday, a rotating squad of expert story-readers will read submitted “grown-up” stories to the eager ears of Rudyard’s bar patrons. The stories to be read monthly are handpicked out of many submissions, and may vary from a brutally honest personal account, an embarrassing memory, or a short fiction story.
Tues., Aug. 21
