Tell A Story

We’re actively looking for stories to feature on the site, on the stage and on The Moth Radio HourRead more »


The Moth Mainstage is our flagship program and features stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, newsmakers and news breakers, and everyday heroes (and even a few reformed villains!). Each show features five storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. Beyond a mere theatrical experience, The Moth is an ever-growing community where entertainment, enlightenment and festivity merge.

The Moth Mainstage is a staple of the literary and art scenes in New York City and Los Angeles, but also tours throughout the United States and abroad. On the road, favorite storytellers from past Moth shows share the stage with local voices.

Tour partners have included public radio stations, non-profit organizations and international arts festivals.  (We’ve even joined forces with the U.S. State Department to produce a Mainstage in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.)

If you are interested in bringing The Moth to your part of the world, please contact us.
