Presented by KCRW and The Santa Barbara Independent, the Moth’s celebration of inspiring, harrowing, and courageous live stories is returning to Santa Barbara. Join us for Holding On & Letting Go, an evening about the forever and the fleeting. Hear five storytellers share tales of catch and release, the ephemera and the evergreen, the days and nights when the white flag went up or you held tighter — and moving onto the next chapter.

What began as a modest storytelling collective in its founder’s living room has grown into an epic, nationwide phenomenon with a cult-like following. Five hand-picked Moth Mainstage all-stars will tie together the brilliant and the absurd for a spellbinding evening at the historic Lobero Theatre. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the show dances between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
