J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban

Emcee:  Your host: Robin Maxfield works for the Speech Improvement Company as a coach and trainer.  Besides storytelling, she produces and hosts Boston's only all female stand up show- Comedy with Wings.

 

Special Guest:  H.R. Britton 
A midwesterner at heart, H.R. Britton has been telling stories and teaching on the East Coast since 1999.  He has also performed his serio-comic monologues around the U.S., in Canada, and in India.  He had the privilege of co-hosting the 2010-2011 J.P. Story Slam season with Robin Maxfield, (with whom he developed something of a Laurel & Hardy stage relationship).  Now he hosts massmouth's curated "1st Person Plural" show in Somerville.   He recently got a master's degree in Theater Education, started playing the ukulele, and became a dad. 

THE VENUE:  Recognized as Boston's best bar and restaurant, Doyle's Café offers a mix of good food, good talk and good people. Nearest T: Green Street (Orange Line) and several bus lines. 3484 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

What's a story slam?

Modeled after poetry slams, massmouth’s story slams invite storytellers—from experienced performers to first-timers—to share a real-life story in five minutes.  Storytellers sign up and 10 are chosen at random to tell their story on the slam's theme. Volunteer judges award prizes based on a story’s narrative arc, presentation and connection to the theme. Judges select first and second place winners and the audience votes for a third. Winners are invited back for the semi-finals in March, where they vie for a spot in the finals.

NOTE:  This year (2013), Story Slam Finals (also known as the Big Mouth Off) will take place on April 17th at the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline!
