Do you want to tell a story?
The vomitorium is a Greek word meaning to spew forth, where we also get the word vomit. The vomitorium was an entrance place in the Ancient Greek Theatre where the actors would be spit into the playing space to tell the story. The vomitorium, a term still used today, represents a transition, the journey from one place to another, from offstage to onstage, from darkness to light. And in this transition we often find our greatest stories.

Rules

  • Come prepared to tell your story on stage, unscripted without notes.  A personal, true story, that happened to you where you are the central character. Though we love fiction, we're interested in the truth. Your truth. Spill all of the details.
  • Stories must be within a [4 to 8] minute time frame
  • Tell ONE story with a beginning middle and end containing a series of events that grow to a climax. Though we love stand up comedy, this is not a stand up set. We're only interested in the thoughts, feelings, and emotions you experienced through this ONE story from your life that you've prepared. 
  • Practice, practice, practice.
