Stay safe and stay home, slammers, as this time around, the stories are coming to YOU. This month’s story theme is “Struggle.” As we approach the holidays in this strange pandemic year, our storytellers will be sharing tales that, no doubt, we will all understand. With any luck, we will leave with a little extra hope. Get your favorite beverage ready and join us for music, stories and community. Digital happy hour and music start at 7:15 pm. Slam starts at  7:35 pm.

Celebrating 10 years at the Lawrence Arts Center, Story Slam brings together local, regional, and sometimes national storytellers who share true stories filled with humor, pain, joy, terror, love and every emotion in between. No need to make a reservation; storytellers register upon arrival. While originally modeled after story telling programs like The Moth, Lawrence’s version includes prepared stories sometimes intermingled with impromptu stories inspired as the live event unfolds.

Stories are approximately five to eight minutes long, and (in pre-pandemic times) are told on the main stage. The event is not a competition, but at evening’s end, the audience will vote for a handful of favorites of the night. Those storytellers are invited to tell a new story at the season-ending “Grand Slam.”

Adults, 18+ only
