The Moth StorySLAMs are steadily spreading all over the map, gathering people and stories from all over the country. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston have multiple shows each month. The Moth is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s posted theme. The brave of heart, or those with stories they’re aching to tell, prepare personal, true tales. When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth Hat. A half-hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. Each person has just five minutes! The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in our GrandSLAM Championships. Come sign up to tell a story, or just enjoy the show!
August 14 theme is Destiny: Prepare a five-minute story about something you feel was meant to be. Destined for greatness or not-so-greatness, fated to marry the girl next door, win the lottery or become a lumberjack.
August 21 theme is Business: Prepare a five-minute story about professional dealings. Selling out or buying in. Exciting ventures, risky arrangements and blind ambition. Breaking eggs to make omelets, stabbing backs to get ahead and creative solutions to integrating work and humanity.
