SIX STORIES, TOLD AT NIGHT - the little podcast that could.

The award-winning audio drama is heading to the Toronto Fringe Festival: the first independent fantasy podcast adapted for the stage. But mounting a stage production has different challenges than putting together a podcast.

The woods, faeries, and monsters that once inhabited our listeners’ imaginations need to be brought to life. For realsies. On a stage. 

And so we’re asking for your help on this part of SIX STORIES’ journey. Any funds received will offset the cost of building set pieces, sourcing props, and creating costumes for our three amazing actors.

Plus administrative costs: printing and copying those fine, fine programmes!

What is SIX STORIES, TOLD AT NIGHT?

SIX STORIES weaves five French-Canadian fairy tales within a larger story.  Troubled and feverishly creative, Samantha’s best friend Joëlle has vanished. But in the folktales they once shared, Joëlle has left a trail to follow—one that leads straight to the gates of Faerie.

The original audio drama was written by KT Bryski and performed by Blythe Haynes, two artists from Toronto. Take a listen here! 


So it’s the little podcast that could, huh?


SIX STORIES was the first independent fantasy podcast to receive government funding (thanks, Ontario Arts Council!). It won the 2017 Parsec Award for Excellence in Speculative Fiction Podcasting (Best Story: Novella).

Now we’ve adapted it for the stage, premiering at the Toronto Fringe Festival.




Why are you asking for money?

The Toronto Fringe operates on a profit-share basis. After expenses are deducted from the gross ticket sales, the company splits the remainder.

Any assistance we get in offsetting production expenses helps us to fairly compensate our actors and creative team.

What’s in it for me?


You’re helping us put together the best show we possibly can. In audio dramas, there are many ways to keep costs down. You don’t need physical space. Or costumes. Or props. Theatre is a very different animal. We want to give our audiences the same high quality they experienced in the audio drama.

Also, there are (updated) reward tiers!

Initial Goal - $250 (PASSED!)

Congrats, pals! You've unlocked a "Road to the Fringe" companion podcast!

Stretch Goal #1 - $500 (PASSED!)

Whoa! We can print higher quality signage and marketing materials to help people find our show! We can also breathe much easier in regards to our set and props!

Unlock this level for a behind-the-scenes vlog featuring rehearsal snippets , interviews, and more!

Stretch Goal #2 - $1000

In addition to production costs, this handles most of the festival deposit/admin costs.

At this level, KT will write a "seventh story," a standalone piece based on another folktale.

Stretch Goal # 3 - $1500

At this point, all expenses are covered and ticket sales are going directly to the cast and crew. Which is a pretty big deal.

If we make it to this level...you've been asking KT for Coxwood Season 2. For years, you've been asking.

If we reach this level, she'll do it. She will release a special Coxwood Season 2 miniseries.


In closing…


SIX STORIES has lived a fairy tale life so far. We’re so excited to see where the journey takes us—and to premiere new Canadian theatre at the Toronto Fringe. Any help and encouragement we receive along the way is so greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

We did it!!! Thank you all! As playwright/co-producer of SIX STORIES, TOLD AT NIGHT, I will bring your fab generosity to our production meeting this Friday, where we will allocate monies for the rest Fringe.

All admin/festival expenses are covered, 100%. Now we will balance production expenses against the remainder. At this point, our box office should be going to the cast and crew directly.
