Cast of The Moth on stage after the show

Final bow.

On stage with cast of storytellers
Post show bow at Pittsburgh’s The Moth Grand Slam in October 2018.

Wonderful show. Catherine told a great story that centered around a 16 month relationship with a plant, not a ten-year struggle over cancer.

Lots of physical mojo in the stories including a guy who aims to dunk, then the trip to NYC with a back-seat pee, a bully-beating in high school, a patient patient, an ants in his pants teacher, and more.

Catherine’s three-time reign as Pittsburgh’s Grand Slam Champion has come to a close.
