Get ready for Tales from Island Boy Public Journal! Coming to The Guild is Justin Shaw’s latest one-person comedy: The 70 Mile Yard Sale!

In a story about a madcap journey across the Island to retrieve a lost family heirloom, Shaw shares a story that is equal parts funny and heartfelt about finding more than what you bargained for.
