Once storytelling events during the Family Festival have ended and the young ones have gone to bed, massmouth has been invited back to celebrate First Night and say hello to 2014 with two back-to-back story slams:
8:00pm to 9:00pm
9:30pm to 10:30PM
at Boston’s biggest party, First Night!

The theme for stories is any prompt* from Season V story slams. "Stories may contain some explicit sexual content and language."
(*accident, used, teacher, 9 to 5, spirit, fear, magic, risk, we are family, serendipity, feast, risk, celebrate, revelation, holidaze)
Tell your 1 minute story or sit back and listen to some of Boston's best storytellers.
Slam winners from our Greater Boston story slams will perform along with volunteers from the audience with 1 minute stories on any of the season's themes. They can drop their names in the “hat” and a few will be drawn at random to tell in each slam.
Both story slams were standing room only last year so come early to get a seat.
About these story slams
Like a poetry slam, a story slam is a performance based contest where volunteer storytellers bring their best true stories on a theme. Due the transitory nature of 1st Night audience, tonight's slam will not be judged.
