The Moth Mainstage

Each Moth Mainstage features simple, old-fashioned storytelling, by five wildly divergent raconteurs who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. Tonight’s host is R. Eric Thomas, an award-winning playwright and the host of The Moth in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. He is a Senior Staff Writer for, where he writes a daily humor column on politics and pop culture. His debut essay collection, Here For It, is forthcoming from Ballantine Books. The storytellers will include Robinah Babirye, an advocate for young people living with HIV and very passionate about the issues affecting the Girl Child. Copies of The Moth Presents Occasional Magic: True Stories about Defying the Impossible (Crown) will be on sale at this event.
