Why So Much Shame?

Part of Dead Parents Club

About the Show

A story of losing a dad. Twice.

Nicole was six when her dad died. But she kept trying to get his attention, in hopes he'd come back. WHY SO MUCH SHAME? uses vivid storytelling to explore a child's secret, unspoken grief, a woman's confrontation with the truth, and the powerful things that happen when we stop pretending.

About the Festival

If you’re not a member of the Dead Parents Club yet … you will be. That’s why the Tank has brought some of New York City’s top performers to share their harrowing, heartwarming, and often hilarious true life stories of being part of the worst club we all eventually have to join. The Dead Parents Club Solo Show Festival will be held at our partner theater, Standard ToyKraft in Williamsburg, and features storytellers who have performed on The Moth MainStage, RISK! Live, Snap Judgment, and in storytelling festivals and shows literally across the globe.

About Standard ToyKraft

Standard ToyKraft is an artist run theater that offers low-cost performance and rehearsal space as well as a puppet shop and private studios for visual artists. The founders of STK discovered a derelict factory floor located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. With lots of blood, sweat and more tears than any of us care to admit we transformed this old sweatshop into a community organization. At the core Standard Toykraft is a community endeavor. Our community of artists continues to grow in this tough city because, we provide a supportive refuge for the development of work. We also produce many of our own shows and events including puppet slams, variety shows, vaudevillian weirdness and various spectacles for the amusement of our patrons.
