This evening at St. Petersburg's FreeFall Theatre, a racially diverse group of storytellers will present dramatic interpretations of the real stories of domestic day workers and their employers.

The night's featured guest is storyteller and author Dr. My Haley, widow of Alex Haley.

She collaborated with him on the iconic book and television show Roots.

After the performances, some of the actual subjects will go on stage for an interactive talk-back with the audience.

The event begins at 7 p.m. For information, check out freefalltheatre.thundertix.com or call (727) 498-5205.
