Wine reception at 6:30pm for registered guests.

Internationally acclaimed comedian and storyteller Dhaya Lakshminarayanan emcees a night of engaging stories with JP Frary, Trina Michelle Robinson, Kathleen Auterio and Kyle Metzner. Throw your name in the hat to tell a one-minute story in the Lightning Round.

Kathleen Auterio is a heavy metal and horror movie fanatic in a constant battle with gravity and reality. When not disregarding medical advice to travel thousands of miles to see a concert, she plays and records with her own band, Beast of England. She’s recently told her stories from serious to absurd at The Moth GrandSlam, Risk! Live show and Podcast, Porchlight, Fireside, Spokespeople, Bawdy, and more.

JP Frary designs and builds furniture in a shop on the old Naval Air Station in Alameda specializing in making beautiful things out of recycled materials. His stories can be heard in hardware stores and lumber yards throughout the Bay Area. JP won a Moth Story Slam with a story about trying to cross the Trinity Alps in mid-winter when he was eighteen. He failed.

Trina Michelle Robinson is interested in exploring memory through video, archival materials and text. Her video essay The Call has been exhibited in galleries and film festivals throughout the country. She has also told the story of exploring her ancestry on The Moth Mainstage at theaters in New York, Portland, OR and Westport, CT.

Kyle Metzner is an educator, craftsman, and storyteller who lives in Oakland with his filmmaker wife and two daughters. He designed a project-based educational program which mixes dangerous power tools and fire with social justice and creativity. He is currently writing a book about how to use the power of storytelling to create more engaging classrooms.

Dhaya Lakshminarayanan’s accolades as an internationally recognized comedian include the 2016 Liz Carpenter Political Humor Award and Grand Prize Winner of ‘The Ultimate Comedy Challenge’ filmed in Singapore. Dhaya’s stories have appeared on NPR, Snap Judgement and the Moth podcast. Dhaya also regularly acts as emcee at the monthly Moth StorySLAMs in San Francisco.
