  • Rotunda 4014 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

Act Name:  MYOB: Mind Your Own Body: Irreconcilable Differences and Other Tales

Running Time: 2 hours

Location: The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

Accessibility: The Rotunda is wheelchair accessible.

Description: These are stories that matter...

Denise McCormack  hits the mark running to spin out personal, traditional, and  mildly adapted literary tales that shine a light on the little things that move us to action... 

This one-woman show spins out true and personal stories alongside mildly adapted literary tales, including The Story of an Hour and A Pair of Silk Stockings, and traditional folktales bearing the winsome Cinderella motif but straying far from the path to bring added depth to the human dynamic and social issues. 

Altogether, this cache of great tales illustrates shared experience in a subversive culture that we are often blind to, and they can help guide us to conversation, understanding, and change.

Denise McCormack tells stories with and for a purpose and strives to make a difference by raising awareness and fostering encouragement, especially regarding women's issues. Whether they're personal, folk, fairy, or literary,  she offers vantages  of the multi-faceted historical and familial contexts that surround and shape them-- and strikes a nerve.

McCormack has been telling professionally for more than a decade, presents programs throughout the tri-state area, and is deeply committed to sharing the benefits of storytelling in a broad spectrum of applications—from education and community to business, health, and well-being. 

Among her many roles in storytelling, McCormack is the NJ state liaison for the National Storytelling Network, co-chair of the NJ Storytelling Festival, president of the Patchwork Storytelling Guild in Philadelphia, and an active member of various other local and national organizations wherein storytelling plays an integral role.

McCormack's mantra: There is a story for every time and purpose under heaven.  To find out more, go to
