Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling in The Gallery at Villageworks in West Acton. 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? You can 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.
November Theme: “Just in Time”
Mark is a computer programmer from Littleton. He started telling stories in public about six years ago when he ran out of relatives who hadn't heard that one before. He's won several story slams at the Moth and Massmouth, and he's been a featured speaker at WGBH's “Stories From the Stage.” And he counts himself blessed that he's occasionally invited to speak with much better tellers at great venues, like Fugitive Productions.
Theresa Is a Wisconsin native, a yoga teacher, a social worker, a storyteller, and the co-host of WGBH & Massmouth's Stories from the Stage — the first nationally televised TV show dedicated entirely to live storytelling. She works in nonprofit development, and also owns and operates a small business called LEGIT.yoga, where she provides trauma-informed yoga to people at Boston-area homeless shelters, low-income housing communities, and alternative schools. She loves sandwiches, hammocks, crafting cocktails, cooking without a recipe, and laughter.
Don Picard 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.
