Rachna Prasad - Producer / Director

Rachna wants to know why you chose that career, how he proposed, and why she wears that locket everyday. The small talk on the playground simply whetted her appetite to know more about the people in her community. She soon began hosting a monthly Story Night at home. After binging on storytelling podcasts and exhausting her friends and family, a trip to a live event in Chicago convinced her that colorful and diverse Naperville was the perfect place for a show! After co-founding First Person Live, she is excited to dig more deeply into local stories and storytellers with The People Tree.

 

At home, Rachna strives to stay one step ahead of the three kids she shares with her husband Jesse all while trying to make the perfect cup of chai. She's almost nailed it. The chai that is. The kids are another story.

Claire Dee - Producer / Director

Claire has always been passionate about stories. As a child she enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table or by the fire listening to her family talk about WWI, WWII, playing in bomb craters, carrying musical instruments across fields to perform gigs, leaving home at 14 to move to London, not to mention successfully outrunning a charging bull! At the weekends or during vacation time she’d visit ancient homes and Gardens in England and learn about the long dead occupants and their ghosts….!

 

More recently she has enjoyed listening to live storytelling shows such as The Moth and regularly attended a Naperville home based storytelling group. In 2016, she further developed her passion for live storytelling by co-founding the successful First Person Live.

 

With the creation of Naperville’s newest storytelling show, The People Tree, Claire is looking to identify and organically develop home grown talent, through the monthly workshops.
