Description

Travel back in time to remember the good, bad, and awkward parts of growing up. Recorded live on stage, adults share the weird and wonderful things they wrote as children and teens. Embarrassing, moving, and hilarious, these readings are powerful reminders of who we used to be. The Guardian says "it has much charm," while Splitsider describes GRTTWaK as "equal parts cringe-worthy and cathartic." RIYL: RISK!, The Moth, Mortified, My Teenage Diary, True Story
