The Moth: Virtual Mainstage
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS A VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE THAT IS BEING LIVE-STREAMED.
ONE VIRTUAL REGISTRATION IS PERMITTED PER TICKET PURCHASED.
Join us for an evening of true stories told live from The Wilbur and livestreamed to your home.
Four storytellers will take the stage and share a true, personal story from their life.
The Moth is an acclaimed 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.
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. Moth stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes.
