Club Passim "Sleepless Nights" Slam

  • Club Passim 47 Palmer Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

Come on down to Club Passim in Harvard Square in Cambridge for our monthly 'slam." This month's theme is "Sleepless Nights."

Tickets are $10 online at Club Passim or at the door. Doors open at 6pm. Show is at 7pm.

 

A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening's theme (see full season listing below). Ten names are drawn at random from a box. A team of 5 volunteer judges - interested amateurs, storytellers, theater people and members of the audience who love stories - evaluate how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme and, how well it honors the time limit. The 2 highest-scoring tellers and a third selected by the audience are awarded prizes and an opportunity to perform at the "BigMouthOff" at the end of the slam season in May.
