Storytelling champs mingle with locals at The Moth

Lisa Charleyboy is one of the storytellers at The Moth this Saturday night (May 20) at the Vogue Theatre.

 

The acclaimed storytelling series The Moth comes to Vancouver this Saturday, May 20.

Regarded as one of the premiere podcasts for great storytelling, The Moth is also a touring, live event, which brings a few Moth vets together with local talent.
