The very first Hartford Mouth storytelling event will be on 2/22 (Friday) at 7:30! Hosted by our friends at WNPR, Chion Wolfe (Wolfie) will MC.. Following in the theme of the " the moth radio hour"...
It’s (appropriately) at the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, and is TOTALLY FREE.
Each Mouth will be themed, and since this one is in February, it’s only right to tell a love story. If you’re interested in telling your story, email Chion at - [masked] or get to her on Facebook to tell her approximately how long the story will be (it’d be great if you could keep it under 15 minutes). If there’s time left in the night, we’ll ask if anyone in the audience has a story to tell!
THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION, just storytelling goodness without notes, in front of a bunch of friends, in a museum dedicated to one of our country’s best storytellers. No pressure. ;)
***Please note that the audio will be recorded for a compilation down the line.***
After the show is over, Wolfie will be soliciting ideas and feedback about what we could do better - if paying a little bit at the door, or donating in the future would still make you want to come back; if we should have some drinks in the lobby beforehand, or if that will just make you have to pee while forgetting all the major details of your story. Things like that.
There will be four more Mouth events this year, so mark ‘em down too:
