Was the Word is Working Group Theatre's monthly spoken word, storytelling, and music event at The Englert Theatre. Each event brings together community members and local performers to share their words and experiences on stage to benefit local non-profits or community service groups. Non-profit partners for the Spring Season include The Senior Center, The Shelter House, and Pathways.

Tickets are Pay What you Can at the door.

Was the Word is part of Working Group Theatre’s creation of "The Broken Chord," a full-length play presented by Hancher April 12-14, 2013 examining the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease on caregivers and communities.
