Potluck Performer Spotlight: Adam Membrey

Adam Membrey is a special education teacher who takes pride in being half-Australian and full-Dork. Born and raised in Spokane, WA, he feels a weird twinge whenever he doesn’t meet his 10,000 steps goal every day, but has learned the value of having ice cream and waffles for dinner. His head is full of unfinished movie ideas, digressive blog posts, and poorly-worded jokes, some of which show up on his website,

Tonight, Adam will bring to the stage his story of learning that what we want from others doesn’t always look like we think it will in his piece The Tools We Share.


Potluck Performer Spotlight: ​Aralyn Hughes

​Aralyn Hughes has a feature documentary about her life entitled LOVE IN THE SIXTIES. It tells the story as to why CBS called Aralyn, Austin’s Queen of Weird. While this documentary about her life was coming together, Hughes published an anthology called “Kid Me Not” documenting the stories of “women from the ’60s, in their 60s who chose not to have children.”

Join us Thursday for Aralyn’s story about college, sororities, and the 60’s titled, “What Are the Rules?”
