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 usually take place at the Rex Theatre the second Tuesday of the month.
We can meet in the lobby of the Rex at 7pm to get our tickets and mingle beforehand. Afterwards if the group is interested we can go out for a drink. More details to follow closer to the date.
Please note that while tickets at the door are only $5 -- one needs to get there early as these events often sell-out. Lines will begin forming by 7 PM. However, there is another option for those that can't be there early which is to buy the advance ticket for $10 by visiting http://themoth.org/events?category=25
