Local and national storytellers flirt with disaster

JACKSON HOLE, WY— The national, award-winning live storytelling show returns to the Center Theater Friday for its third annual mainstage performance. This year’s theme: “Flirting with Disaster.”

These are stories from the razor’s edge. Close calls and death-defying heroics. Taunting fate, laughing in the face of danger, or walking haplessly into the lion’s den.

This year’s storytellers include Barack Obama’s former speechwriter David Litt, Jackson local and Latino advocate Cristina Briones Macías, and Laramie-based, Singapore-born writer Nina McConigley. Jackson Hole Chamber Music founding member Jennifer Ross will provide  musical interludes between each story. Check out the full line-up here.

Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes. Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 20,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. Additionally, The Moth runs storytelling workshops for high school students and adults in underserved communities through their Education and Community Programs. The Moth podcast is downloaded over 44 million times a year, and each week, the Peabody Award-winning Moth Radio Hour is heard on over 450 radio stations worldwide. The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories (Hachette) was an international bestseller and its new book All These Wonders: True Stories about Facing the Unknown from The Moth (Crown) will be released on March 21, 2017.


The Moth has no age minimum. That said, if you are thinking of bringing a young person, we encourage you to first consider the following:

Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are meant for mature audiences and might include the use of occasional profanity.
