December 2016 Events at West Park Presbyterian Church

December 9, 2016

THE MOTH MAINSTAGE, Thursday, December 15th at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm)  The Moth is true stories, told live and without notes. The Moth celebrates the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present recognized storytellers among established and emerging writers, performers and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard.  The Moth Mainstage features five tellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth directors.  Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge.  Disclaimer:  Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are very much meant for audience aged 16 years and older.  Many of the tellers use profanities that may be offensive to children and their parents.  Photography by Dare Kumolu-Johnson. Tickets can be purchased directly HERE.
