The Moth: Pittsburgh Story Slam

What is The Moth???

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

The Pittsburgh Moth Story Slams will be taking place at the Rex Theatre the first Tuesday of the month. The theme for October is "Creepy".

We can meet in the lobby of the Rex at 7pm to get our tickets and mingle beforehand. I'll have a meet-up sign. Afterwards if the group is interested we can go out for a drink. More details to follow closer to the date.

    • Sam B.­. If you want a guaranteed seat it's more expensive. If you want to take a chance on there being no seat you can just turn up.

    50 tickets are sold pre-sale at $10 for folks who don't want to wait in line. If you get there an hour early you should have no problem getting a $5 ticket.
