The Moth is a "Live", unscripted storytelling show, where people tell True Stories on a certain theme at each event. A StorySLAM is kinda like a slam poetry event, but with people telling True Stories, rather than poetry.
You will see a Diverse group of people, telling their stories. Some stories are Funny, Sad, Thought Provoking etc.
The Theme for this event is "KARMA"
Storytelling begins at: 7:30 pm (First Come Seating)

If you're feeling Daring, you can put your name in a hat to tell a TRUE STORY, on the theme (They'll randomly choose 10 people for the SLAM), or you can just sit back...and enjoy the stories.
Story Telling Rules: For those who are Feeling Daring!
The Moth is not for fiction stories. The Moth is NOT a venue for readings; it is a venue for tellings. No notes, papers, or cheat sheets allowed. Contestants are judged on sticking to the five-minute time frame, sticking to the theme and having a story that sticks -- one that has a conflict and a resolution. No standup routines please: The Moth LOVES funny people but requires that all funny people tell funny STORIES. Steer clear of meandering endings: Your last line should be clear in your head. Start in the action and set up the stakes.
