Shannan Hicks is our first-ever wild card storyteller. The idea behind the wild card storyteller is simple: prior to intermission, audience members who'd be interested in telling a story with little to no warning toss their names into a hat. At the end of intermission, a name is drawn. That person tells a 10-minute story on the night's theme (in this case, womanhood) with all of 30 seconds to prepare. To place this in context: most of our storytellers have three to five weeks to prepare. Shannan had 30 seconds.
