"There is one world, but a thousand doorways" - Kurdish saying

Second show just added - don't miss it!

Moved by the silencing of the Kurdish language by Turkish laws, renowned American storyteller Diane Edgecomb embarks on a journey of intrigue and heart to record the last Kurdish storytellers.  This true account will take you to remote mountain villages where she opens doorways to this hidden world

"A Thousand Doorways is a tour de force in every way. The story of her adventures in the Kurdish region of Turkey is courageous and deeply evocative, by turns terrifying, hilarious, enchanting and poignant. Her delivery of this incredible story is impeccable, bringing to life every character she meets with vivid style."

"From her intrepid and entrepreneurial mountain guide, to the refugee boy who has lost his front teeth due to torture, to the feisty grandmother who spins magical ancient tales and then invites her to “skypee,” every person is unforgettable. A Thousand Doorways will leave you irrevocably and powerfully changed.”

Author of A Fire in My Heart, the first collection of Kurdish folktales to be published in English, Diane Edgecomb is also one of America’s leading storytellers, winner of the ORACLE award for Storytelling Excellence in the Northeast and five Storytelling World awards. “A storyteller in the grand tradition, Edgecomb is a virtuoso of the spoken word, an entire cast rolled into one.” Publisher’s Weekly.
