Telltale: We Do Our Best

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit, and it looks like it might be again? We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We are solidly in our 4th season now. So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have a November show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making me angry all the time….and….you see my…

The Moth: Virtual StorySLAM: Disguises

DISGUISES: Prepare a five-minute story about going undercover. Fake mustaches, heel lifts, cloaks, a nurse’s uniform, or that giant hotdog costume. Mental disguises, like the Ph.D. you earned to appease your mother; or the “sensitive guy” persona you thought might work in your favor. Chameleon-level concealment. Pranks and mistaken identities. Wolves gussied up like lambs. The Trojan Horse, the Mighty Oz and now … you! Media Sponsor: KUOW Additional Information About the Venue A link to the official Zoom room will be sent on the day of the event to anyone who purchases a ticket. Make sure you check your spam folder. If you have any issues accessing the event please contact info@themoth.org [Buy Tickets Here]
