The Moth: Michigan GrandSLAM Championship

. April 1, 2015.

Everyday experience ranges from tragic to absurd, uplifting to harrowing, unfortunate to serendipitous. As life provides the characters, plot, and conclusion, sometimes, truth really is, as they say, stranger than fiction. And the storyteller’s voice has the power to captivate audiences, leaving them spellbound in ways the written word can’t. The Moth: Michigan GrandSLAM Championship presents true narratives from the best of the best as the winners from Michigan’s monthly Moth Storyslam gather to compete for top honors. A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available online two weeks before the show.

Doors at 6pm, stories begin at 7:30pm, Tuesday, April 14. $25. The Ark, 316 South Main St. theark.org
