Bring Your Own Presents: 'The Writing's On The Wall'

Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme.

Tristan tells of buying his first house in New Orleans, and a few... inconveniences... that came along with it.

This story was told live on April 17, 2013 at the Old Firehouse on Mandeville Street, and later produced by Natalie Yahr. The theme was "Jackpot", and Tristan Bennett told this winning story about how he thought he landed a jackpot, but soon learned it would be a much longer journey until he reached good fortune. 

*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Liam Daniel Pierce, Laine Kaplan-Levenson, and Nina Feldman. To hear more stories, go to bringyourownstories.com.
