storyslam3Three or four times a year the Newton Nomadic Theater runs a night of story telling called the Nomad Story Slam.  Thanks to NewTV and our great video team (Chris Pitts, Maureen Reilly-Meagher, Walter Frankel, and Irina Slovtsova) we capture these stories on video.  Here are the stories from Nomad Story Slam 8 (last April) – better late than never ;-). 

The theme of the night was “trouble”.  I kicked it off with a story of election shenanigans.  Unbeknownst to me, later in the night, my wife (Marie Jackson) joined in with her side of the same story.

If you enjoy these stories from some of your Newton neighbors then come on down to Gregorian Rugs on Saturday Nov 19, 7:30 PM for the next Nomad Story Slam.  The theme will be “that was odd“.  So start working on your own story or just come on down to listen to stories.  Tickets ($10) at  It’s a great night and these story slams help support our theatrical productions.
