GeNarrations is a storytelling performance workshop for adults 55+.

Participants develop personal narrative performance pieces based on themes raised by Goodman productions, which they are then invited to perform in a public forum. The Goodman offers at least three seven-week sessions each season, with up to 20 participants in each session. This program is presented in collaboration with the City of Chicago’s Department of Family and Support Services as well as session-specific community based organizations.

As part of the Goodman's efforts to help mitigate community spread of COVID-19, GeNarrations classes are currently taking place online.

The summer session of GeNarrations is currently underway and will conclude on August 21, 2020. To learn more about this program, or sign up for a class in the fall session, email us at
