What the heck is Story Slam?

  • A community center at 1401 Central Ave. that nurtures creativity, solutions and thoughtful discussion
  • Fresh, rich story-telling by award-winning playwrights, poets, artists and musicians.
  • A bold move by theatre veterans who believe that “it’s all story.”

Story Slam! Charlotte is the vision of Mark Woods, Randell Haynes and others as a result of their work with the Playwrights Project/New River Dramatists, a North Carolina-based research and development initiative.

Woods and Haynes wanted a less-than-conventional outlet work developed by New River Dramatists. Also, the pair were motivated by a desire to offer spirited, meaningful and compensated opportunities to regional artists.

The black box theater is at 1401 Central Ave., Suite 103, in the heart of Charlotte’s Plaza Midwood neighborhood.
