Hosted by Wes Hazard and Theresa Okokon, Stories From The Stage invites storytellers from around the world to share extraordinary tales of what it means to be human. Tonight: there are often opportunities in life for people to make a difference. Some are thoughtfully planned, while others are decisions we make in the moment. Hear how people found themselves in situations where they could stand up for a cause that is important to them or a person in their lives, and celebrate their courage. The live event takes place tonight at 7pm in the WGBH Brighton Studios. Find more information and tickets here.

Stories from the Stage airs on Mondays at 9:30pm on World Channel, and repeats on Sundays at 7:30pm on WGBH 2.
