Generation Women is a multigenerational storytelling night that invites a woman or non-binary performer in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s+ to share an original true story on a theme.
Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and reflect on the cycle of life. The mission of Generation Women is to amplify underheard voices, and create space for intergenerational connection and community. All are welcome to join us.

My Biggest Secret
We’ve all got secrets. Maybe it's a real I-know-what-you-did-last-summer secret. Or maybe it’s liking being a certain age/weight/race (etc), even when society says we shouldn’t. This month we invited our superstar performers to tell us an intimate true story about a secret wish, belief, event or dream. Whether it’s a confession, confidential, or clandestine, this month at Generation Women, it’s time to spill!
