Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington. We bring Moth and Massmouth winners, along with others from the local community, to share their stories. Do you want to tell your story on our theme? Fill out our form online. We'll get back to you to let you know if you're in. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a five- to six-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale.
October Theme: “Simply Irresistible”
Don is a Moth storyteller who shares his own moving life moments with humor and humility. He has worked in software development for nearly 30 years and is currently employed for JobCase, “a place to manage all things work-related, especially the wisdom, experience and connections” of other job hunters. Don was a double major in Theatre Arts and Computer Science at Cornell, and chose to work as an engineer in order to be able to live in Cambridge and feed his family. Don enjoys telling live stories about his kids, husband, and extended family as it is fun, therapeutic, and allows him to exercise the other half of his college degree so he doesn’t become bitter.
Harold, the 2019 Massmouth “Big Mouth Off” champion, has been a featured teller on WGBH’s “Stories from the Stage” and is a producer of “Stories to Scenes,” a monthly storytelling show in Roslindale. He is a professor at Boston University School of Public Health. He notes, “There is something special that happens when you tell a story. You can feel we’re all connected. It’s powerful.” When not at work or telling stories, Harold can be found canoeing, dogsledding, and knitting.
