A story that demonstrates just how powerful telling your story can be.

Story

A woman is tired of being told what to do and of never having the chance to speak for herself. She goes to an empty house and tells her story to the walls – with dramatic results.

Why we chose it

The Power of Stories was one of the stories in The Story Museum’s original audio stories collection. It shows how powerful telling your own story can be.

Where it went next

A written version can be found in Folktales from India: A Selection of Oral Tales from Twenty Two Languages by AK Ramanujan and Jenny Vandeventer.
