It’s that time of the year again, full of PDA, candy hearts, and wilting roses.We want to get down to the nitty-gritty, we want stories of betrayal; so instead of watching Never Been Kissed for the 24th time come join us and celebrate the darker side of love. Bring your stories of betrayal!

Special Guest: H.R. Britton has performed his serio-comic monologues around the U.S., in Canada, and in India. He now hosts massmouth’s “1st Person Plural” show in Somerville. His recent accomplishments include obtaining a master’s degree in Theatre Education, playing the ukulele, and becoming a great dad!
What's a story slam? Modeled after poetry slams, massmouth’s story slams invite storytellers—from experienced performers to first-timers—to share a real-life story in five minutes. Storytellers sign up and 10 are chosen at random to tell their story on the slam's theme. Volunteer judges award prizes based on a story’s narrative arc, presentation and connection to the theme. Judges select first and second place winners and the audience votes for a third. Winners are invited back for the semi-finals in March, where they vie for a spot in the finals.
NOTE: This year (2013), Story Slam Finals (also known as the Big Mouth Off) will take place on April 17th at the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline!
