David Smith took home the prized pint glass with his near-death experience. David earned the final slot in our 2017 West Chester Story Slam GRAND SLAM, which will be held on Tuesday, November 7th at 8pm at the Chester County Historical Society. Click HERE for tickets.
David's story edged out some excellent "Close Calls" stories. We heard about fathers on death beds, getting lost on a Septa bus, watching a newborn nearly get sliced, doing dangerous electrical work, trying to build a relationship with a celebrity, finding the love of one's life, and more. Thanks to all our storytellers for sharing their tales.
At the end of the night, we announced the theme for the 2017 West Chester Story Slam GRAND SLAM is "Pressure!"
Our winning storytellers from the 2017 season will take the big stage to tell their story about pressure - working under pressure, living under pressure, cooking under pressure, surviving the pressure of high school or college or dating. What's your pressure point? What do you do when you have to perform under pressure? Pressure is the theme for November 7th! Order your tickets now!
