Event Description

Friday, May 7, 2010. . . . . . Acton Congregational Church, 12 Concord Rd., Acton, MA. 7-9 p.m.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Everyone has a story in them. Some are lived, some are recalled, and some are invented. Some of us want to tell them, and some of us love to listen. This May, the Acton Story Slam will be the place for telling and hearing stories from near and far.
Open to anyone with a yen for a yarn, ten lucky storytellers will be chosen from a hat from anyone who comes to tell a story for five minutes each. Any tale of laughter, entrancement, poignant memory, or riveting suspense is welcome – this is a shared feast of imagination and the spoken word. Bring the stories in your heads and hearts, from your kitchens and firesides, from your own life experience or others’, true or fabricated. No retelling of literary works, and no notes or props permitted - just words aloud.
