the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
"down and out"
Recession, Depression, Divorce, Bankruptcy, Getting fired/laid-off, Beaten-up, Arrested - any downward spiral....I've fallen and I can't get up!...wait maybe I can just to tell this great story. Bring it.

ABOUT STORY SLAMS: People with a five-minute story on the theme as Contestants will drop their names in the "hat". 10 lucky tellers will be drawn at random to tell and be judged. There will be a team of 5 volunteer judges and massmouth awards prizes to the top two stories. Listeners will be engaged in story improv games between each 5-minute feature.
