Live Storytelling on the Ant Hill

True stories, live, told by YOU. 
All are welcome to Hamtramck's Live Storytelling event on The Ant Hill!

Come listen to our storytellers, or better yet, drop your name in for your chance at 5-7 minutes on stage! 

Hosted by Mike McGettigan, The Ant Hill takes place every 2nd Tuesday of the month at Ghost Light Hamtramck. In the tradition of live story telling events like the Moth, Risk or Snap Judgement, The Ant Hill brings storytellers to the stage with their own stories, told live — without notes. Each "teller" will get 10-15 minutes of time to bring their unique story to life based on a theme chosen (in advance) by the host. 

To tell your story, simply arrive before the show and sign up!

Every estranged member of the Lafayette clan has descended upon the crumbling Arkansas homestead to settle the accounts of the newly-dead patriarch. As his three adult children sort through a lifetime of hoarded mementos and junk, they collide over clutter, debt, and a contentious family history. But after a disturbing discovery surfaces among their father's possessions, the reunion takes a turn for the explosive, unleashing a series of crackling surprises and confrontations.

Live Storytelling on the Ant Hill

True stories, live, told by YOU. 
All are welcome to Hamtramck's Live Storytelling event on The Ant Hill!

Come listen to our storytellers, or better yet, drop your name in for your chance at 5-7 minutes on stage! 

Hosted by Mike McGettigan, The Ant Hill takes place every 2nd Tuesday of the month at Ghost Light Hamtramck. In the tradition of live story telling events like the Moth, Risk or Snap Judgement, The Ant Hill brings storytellers to the stage with their own stories, told live — without notes. Each "teller" will get 10-15 minutes of time to bring their unique story to life based on a theme chosen (in advance) by the host. 

To tell your story, simply arrive before the show and sign up!
