Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling at West Acton Villageworks. 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.
September’s Theme: “Really”
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.
Brendyn has been a professional storyspinner for over 10 years. He’s been featured on Stories from the Stage the hit national TV storytelling show created by Massmouth and WGBH’s The World Channel. He’s also performed at the Cutler Majestic Theater, Emerson College, the Regent Theatre, and other action-packed venues across New England. A Fugitive Stories veteran, he’s a winner of multiple Massmouth regional and semifinal slams, a three-time finalist for Massmouth's annual BigMouthOff show, a Moth StorySLAM winner and Moth GrandSLAM finalist. He has also coached TedX tellers, taught storytelling, and made lots of bizarre choices on stage.
