The Moth
OBERON Shows
The third Tuesday of every month!
Tickets will be available for purchase at 3PM one week prior to the show.

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!

Upcoming Themes:          

Tuesday, August 8: Deadlines

From term papers to having the house spotless before your mother-in-law arrives... as well as: hunting for gas with the needle on E, your first million by 30, abs of steel by summer, finding a willing lover before the Viagra wears off, smoking your LAST cigarette, getting all your dental work done before you get laid-off, speaking your mind before the vow of silence kicks in or LAST CALL!

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. Through its ongoing programs - The Moth Mainstage, The Moth StorySLAMs, MothSHOP Corporate and MothSHOP Community Education Program- The Moth has presented more than three thousand stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
