One true story, two endings: one the way it actually happened, and the other where they rewind time to make it all turn out differently. What happens when you take the other fork in the road, right the wrongs or wrong the rights, say what you could have said, do what you could have done, flip to a different page in the choose your own adventure? When the only thing between a storyteller and the perfect ending is the real ending, they bring it to Take Two.

In her past work life, she spent 5 years supporting grassroots community organizing; now she is a full time side-hustler and nanny who has spent the past six months perfecting the art of underemployment and overcommitment. She is a member of a radical childcare collective, an anti-street harassment group, a queer craft collective. From a family of talkative Swedish women, she is an frequent storyteller, an occasional oral historian, and an ametuer printmaker. She can be found in Bed Stuy biking, baking bread, and wearing fancy jumpsuits.

Nate Waggoner’s writing has appeared in Electric Literature, Barrelhouse, The Hard Times and elsewhere. He has performed at The Bell House, Union Hall, The Magnet, The Annoyance, and elsewhere.
Gabe Gonzalez is a Latinx comedian, writer, and video producer living in Brooklyn. He’s studied at Second City, talked about butt juice on Inside Amy Schumer, and unabashedly flirted with a Fox News anchor during an interview. When he isn’t busy scrambling to pay off an insurmountable debt to Brown University, he enjoys playing with other people's cats and doing standup at bars with a nice wine selection. You can find his video work at places like Mic and MTV or check him out on the HBO Latino doc Habla y Vota. Twitter: @gaybonez
