Fray is about True Stories

We live in a world saturated with make-believe, where even our politicians have a tenuous grasp on the truth. When we do supposedly get reality in the media, it’s constrained to the couches of talk shows, sidewalk soundbites of the “man on the street” interview, or, God forbid, reality television.

Fray is an antidote to this fake reality. The stories are all true, told by the people who lived them.

Of course, there’s always some artifice in storytelling – complicated truths omitted or sanded down for the sake of a good story. But the intent is to get it right, to be true as well as tell an entertaining story.

Don’t get us wrong, we think fiction is a great and noble pastime. But all fiction writers know that their lives are woven into every imaginary situation. We think fiction is just personal storytelling with plausible deniability. We think a truthful intent is a kind of bravery.
