The Moth StorySLAM: Ambition

Wednesday 31 January
Main Space

In a nutshell

Open-mic storytelling competitions. Open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. 

Go on...

January’s theme is AMBITION. Prepare a five-minute story about keeping your eye on the prize! Clawing your way to the top, cut-throat tactics or just keeping your nose to the grindstone. Practice, practice, practice can get you to Carnegie Hall and beyond...but some have made it via sabotage, nepotism or other nefarious calculations! Tell us of the quest to be king or queen of the mountain.

What to Expect

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. 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.
