True Story Theatre of Boston will come to Cape Rep Jan. 22 at 7:30 PM and Jan. 23 at 2:30 PM for "two exciting performances using playback theatre, improv, music and dance."

The theatre will host a Story Slam in its Community Room. The themes for each night, in which guests are invited to sign up to present their own stories, are "Stories of Passion" (Feb. 4) and "Planes, Trains and Zip Line: Modes of Transportation" (Feb. 5).
