STORIES ON STAGE is “our version” of The Moth, the acclaimed program dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of the story and the storytellers- who voices share true tales of ordinary life, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. Our shows will showcase a great range of human experience. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, we will create a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience. The audience will vote for their favorite story/storyteller and he/she will receive a prize! As The Moth so brilliantly does, our hope is that the “stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes”.
