The Moth is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.
Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
Ticket buyers for this performance will receive a special offer on The Moth's latest book, All These Wonders ....True Stories About Facing the Unknown. The book features riveting stories selected from their extensive archive. Storytellers in the book include Louis C.K., Tig Notaro, and John Turturro, as well as a member of Churchill’s “secret army,” a hip hop “one hit wonder," and an astronomer looking at the surface of Pluto for the first time.
