Event Description

Traditional storytellers from massmouth and the Puppet Showplace Theatre (PST) are proud to present a monthly series of folk & fairy tale slams events -

Slamming the Tradition  Six traditional storytelling events for adults. Feb 14 & Mar 14 are last events in series

Open slam, tellers:

  • will tell a 7 minute story
  • must be fiction and in some traditional form
  • may use a prop, costume, music BUT no notes

We have secured the prizes and the audience will choose winners: A bag of magic beans = 1st A magic wishing stone = 2nd A small bale of hay = 3rd

Co-Hosts: Tony Toledo, loose cannon and emcee extraordinaire and the lovely Doria Hughes, storyteller fabulosa (left). 

FEATURE: Norah Dooley will tell stories from Boccaccio's 14th century collection of tales, The Decameron. Norah has chosen tales that range from naughty to lusty, and include romantic tales that come from ancient story traditions of India and the bards of the Holy Roman Empire.


Susan Miron will accompany on the harp drawing on various ancient folk melodies and dances from Southern Italy. The music comes from authentic folk songs of Campagnia, Calabria, Puglia & Napoli as transcribed by John LaBarbera, mandolinist.

Giovanni Boccaccio was an Italian author and poet, a friend, student, and correspondent of Petrarch, an important Renaissance humanist and the author of the Decameron. Boccaccio is particularly noted for his natural and witty  dialogue and his sympathetic female characters.

Additional prizes include a $25 dollar gift certificate from Brookline BookSmith,  passes to story slams + mugs and T-shirts maybe added.

Wine and beer are available. Complimentary chocolates on Valentines Day. Tickets will be $10 online and $12 at the door
