Journalist Dr. Lillian Dunlap and actor/director Jaye Sheldon are co-Artistic Directors of Your Real Stories.

Based in St. Petersburg, Your Real Stories practices “theatrical journalism.” After in-depth interviews with local residents, they distill each person’s story into a script that an actor shares onstage.

Your Real Stories brings real experiences to life, to spark conversations across differences in race, gender and age – while creating a detailed view of local history from many different viewpoints.
