“A breathing portrait … you feel the deep, lonely ache of something precious lost. Thank Heaven that Stories Left to Tell reminds you that something precious remains as well. ” —New York Times

Celebrating the influential work and life of actor/writer Spalding Gray (1941–2004) and his irreverent storytelling style, Stories Left to Tell combines excerpts from both renowned and never-before-seen works that span the artist’s career and life. The piece is performed by a five-person ensemble made up of some of downtown New York’s most accomplished writer/performers—including David Cale, Ain Gordon, Josh Lefkowitz, and Carmelita Tropicana—as well as a different local celebrity guest performer each evening. Stories Left to Tell also honors the 30-year history that the Walker enjoyed with Gray, which included commissions, video coproductions, and presentations of such major works as Swimming to Cambodia, Monster in a Box, and Sex and Death at Age 14.
