Veteran actor Sue Scott --- if you've heard "Prairie Home Companion" you've heard her, as *every* female character -- and her talented cast have been absolutely killing it every Second Sunday of the month for the  LIVE taping of her Island of Discarded Women podcast at French Meadow's Nord Social Hall!

The November 10 show with guest Kim Insley is officially sold out!!  Tickets are now available for the Sunday, Demember 8 show with special guest Susan Kimberly, so if you want to join us for a fun night of smart comedy, original songs, engaging conversation, all while enjoying a special menu of French Meadow's signature organic food and drinks, we suggest you jump on it and BUY TICKETS online (only $12!) now!

AND you can LISTEN to all of the episodes of Island of Discarded Women we've taped at the NORD HERE!  Plus via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify!)

Mixing radio theater satire and inspiring conversations with amazing women who share their personal stories of overcoming obstacles, Island of Discarded Women delves into what it takes for us to reawaken our power after feeling tossed aside, or swept under the rug. 

NEW: Read the feature on Sue Scott's "Island of Discarded Women" at the Star Tribune

 Come to eat and drink at your table right in the intimate Nord Social Hall and enjoy smart comedy performed by Sue and her all-female cast of Islanders, original songs by Zippy Laske, AND an engaging conversation with a special guest each month!  

It's all happening at NORD SOCIAL HALL, the new events and performance venue at French Meadow Bakery & Café!  Nord Social is just off the north patio of French Meadow Café & Bluestem Bar at 2610 Lyndale Avenue South, in Uptown Minneapolis -- follow the signs!  

NEW HOURS!  Doors open at 5:30 pm for seating, food, and drink from French Meadow's organic menu and bar -- think of it as a "Dinner-Theatre-LIVE Podcast" experience!  Show/taping is from 7 to 8:30 pm, PLUS there's a post-show meet and mingle. Seating is first come, first served in this cozy, intimate space, and since previous shows have sold out quickly, advance tickets are HIGHLY recommended.  (All tickets are final.
