Come and listen to a night of good stories at the first Nomad Story Slam at Gregorian Rugs in Lower Falls a week from Friday (11/21). This community storytelling event is loosely modeled on the very popular MOTH Radio Hour and the theme of the night will be “on the road“.
If you like, come and throw your own name in the hat to tell a story yourself. It should be roughly 5 minutes long, be true, have happened to you, and be connected to the “on the road” theme of the night.
Joining us for the event, will be Newton Mayor Setti Warren who will be telling a story of his own. We’ll also have a few other invited surprise story tellers.
You’ve got a week and a half, so polish up that story of yours and try telling it to a crowd. If you plan on telling a story, send me an email ([email protected]) and I’ll send you a few tips … or just show up on the night.
Otherwise just come to listen to stories in the fabulous Gregorian Rugs, a beautiful Oriental rug showroom in the historic mill building in Lower Falls. We’re counting on a bit of that Arabian Nights magic to rub off those beautiful rugs and onto the tales that will be told.
The event is being presented by the new Newton Nomadic Theater. Tickets are $10 and are available at http://NewtonNomadicTheater.org
