Lake Stories

Lake Stories

A lake, a cabin, a family, and all the stories that go with that.


The first play this season at Lake Superior Theatre is Lake Stories written by B.G. Bradley. 
College professor and poet Ben O’Brian is down. Way down.
All he does is sit on the beach next to a fire and look out at the lake. He’s
been doing so most of the summer. 

His family is worried. Even the dog is worried. So they do what any good U.P. family does in a crisis: they tell stories. Join the O’Brian family by a U.P. lake in the summer, sorting out the old stories and inventing some new ones. They’ll laugh, they’ll cry, they’ll remember.

Along the way, you may too. Come back home for Lake Stories. See you by the fire. Grab a stick and roast marshmallows during intermission! And celebrate our history as LST presents and preserves our past!
