Oral Fixation


Oral Fixation (An Obsession With True Life Tales) is a live storytelling series dedicated to bringing the community together through sharing true, personal stories.


Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales) is a live, traveling storytelling series for adults created in Dallas in 2011. Featuring local folks from all walks of life, Oral Fixation's mission is to bring together the community through sharing true, personal stories.

Each show has a theme which is always an idiom: a phrase that has both a literal and a figurative meaning. The evening of stories is curated and heavily edited by Oral Fixation creator Nicole Stewart. She solicits stories from the general public then selects a diverse range of points of view to create an hourlong evening that takes the audience on an emotional journey. One moment the audience is laughing in recognition of shared experiences. The next, tears may come as storytellers courageously reveal their truths. The result is an experience that is cathartic for both the tellers and the listeners.
