Wed March 16 at 7:00 PM, No One Writes to the Colonel
460 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1A4, Canada (Map & Directions)
The meek get the earth, the rich get trust funds. Family legacies, bad genes, ancestors, and heirs are the stuff of which INHERITANCE is made. Bring us your stories of what's passed along and what's left behind.
The tenth MothUP in a collector's series is now upon us! Join us Wednesday, March 16th at No One Writes to the Colonel, but be sure to come early because capacity is limited. (Doors open at 7 p.m.) Once again, we will be joined on stage by Metafilter's own SassHat.

Those storytellers who would like to sign-up in advance of the event should email a brief synopsis of their story to Due to limited space at the venue, pre-selected storytellers will be guest-listed and allowed a plus one in order to guarantee their entrance if we reach capacity. As always, we will maintain a few slots for those storytellers who have not signed up in advance.

Storytellers must sign a release before the start of the event and will be asked to fill out a brief introductory questionnaire.


Stories must be brief! 5-7 minutes
Stories must be TRUE.
Stories must be from personal experience!
Stories must be STORIES. No readings, no props, no notes, no standup!
It is a good idea to have the last line of your story in mind.

This event is entirely FREE!

The event will be filmed and recorded, so be prepared to sign a waiver granting us rights to the material if you plan to share a story. Videos from MothUP events will be featured on The Moth vimeo site, and stories may be considered for the radio program, The Moth Radio Hour. You and your story could end up airing on over 200 public radio stations across the USA!

The room fills up fast, so get there early to ensure a seat.

I arrived at 19:30 but the place was already at capacity and there was a line. I'm sad I'm going to miss it but happy that it's becoming so popular. Next time I'll arrive when the doors open.

I arrived about ten after seven to hear that it had just reached capacity. You can't even be a little late!
