EVERYONE HAS a story, and Loose Lips offer a stage and a microphone to members of the audience who can tell their story, provided it is true, unscripted and doesn’t take longer than five minutes.
The event is hosted by Mags Treanor and special guests, and each month’s session is inspired by a different theme. The story slam takes place every last Wednesday of the month, this month that date is August 25, and the slam is limited to 10 stories.
Open mic events have become very popular, and although the Róisín has regularly hosted open mic sessions for budding comedians and poets, the difference with Loose Lips is that it is not a platform to discover up and coming writers or comedians, and it is not a competition. Loose Lips is an evening where anybody can just come along and tell their story, whether it be tragic, heart rendering or hilarious.
If you wish to participate you can register on the night, when 10 names will be pulled from a hat to decide who gets to tell their story.
The theme for this month’s Loose Lips event is Siblings and it will take place on Wednesday August 25th, 9pm. €5 on the door.
