About Moth Events - Request Your Story Hero

Mainstage

Curated events featuring five tellers who develop and shape their stories with our directors. Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge.

StorySLAM

Open-mic storytelling competitions. Open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. Come tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

GrandSLAM

After ten StorySLAMs in a city, the winners then compete for the title of GrandSLAM Champion with a brand new story. This is the ultimate battle of wits and words.

Special Events

Each year The Moth presents two benefits featuring a special show and party: The Moth Ball and the Moth Members' Show.

Education

Featuring high school and college students who have participated in Moth workshops in their schools.

Community

Showcases of storytellers from a wide range of populations, community organizations and non-profits.

Audience and Age
The Moth has no age minimum, though some of our venues do. That said, if you are thinking of bringing a young person to one of our events, we encourage you to first consider the following: 
• StorySLAMs and GrandSLAMs are open mic; The Moth does not control the content or know what story is about to be told on stage. 
• Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are very much meant for an audience aged 16 years and older. 
• Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are meant for mature audiences and might include the use of profanity.
