Better Said Than Done, Inc,. is a community of professional storytellers based in Fairfax, VA. We produce themed, true, personal storytelling shows throughout Northern Virginia and beyond, featuring experienced performers from our team of spoken word storytellers. In 2013 – 2015, Better Said Than Done was voted the “best performing arts company in Virginia” by Virginia Living Magazine. With stories ranging in length from 7-10 minutes, the shows are energetic, engaging, and highly entertaining. They may be funny, poignant, silly, or unbelievable, but they will convince audiences that life is better in the telling.
Better Said Than Done is all about the storytelling. We have regular shows and travel to give performances, presentations, and workshops at corporate events, comedy clubs, schools, and anywhere else you would like to hear a story.
Storytelling Shows: Our monthly events feature a range of professional spoken word storytellers engaging audiences with funny, poignant, silly and unbelievable true stories on that month’s theme. If you are looking for things to do or a great night out in the DC Metro area or Northern Virginia, Better Said Than Done is the show for you.
Corporate Workshops: Book our storytelling instructors to help you and your team use storytelling to connect with your audience; effectively and memorably communicate your message; and deliver compelling stories for publications, presentations, correspondence, or networking.
Speakers: You provide the theme and we will provide the story. Whether you are honoring your members, recognizing achievements or trying to raise awareness, we can provide stories and presentations on your theme to kick off your event or keep it moving along.
Charity: We are committed to giving back. Better Said Than Done puts on at least two events a year for a local charity – donating all funds to that cause. Please contact us if you’d like to be considered for our next fundraising event.
The Better Said Than Done storytellers are corporate professionals, students, athletes, and educators. We studied English, film, writing, and journalism in college. We like to skydive, hike, watch TV, and march for our political party. Where we came from and what we do with our days is the fuel we use to write our true stories. No matter our background, each of us is committed to the art of storytelling, and takes the task of writing and performing a great story seriously.
