Fugitive Stories at Kickstand Cafe, Arlington

  • Kickstand Cafe 594 Massachusetts Avenue Arlington, MA, 02476 United States (map)

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.

June’s Theme: “The Heat Is On”

Featured Tellers

Susanne Schmidt
Susanne is a standup comedienne, master storyteller, and producer for The Moth. She has appeared in The Boston Women in Comedy Festival, The Toronto SheDot Festival and named the “Best of the Valley Voices” by The Academy of Music Theater and New England Public Radio. Her work as a storyteller and producer has been featured on National Public Radio and CBS Sunday Morning. She is a teaching artist at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, and a graduate professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Susanne is the founder of a Say It Forward Productions an organization dedicated to helping nonprofits bring the stories of their work to life. She is the mother of two amazing young men who would prefer that she stop talking about them on stage.

Jannelle Codianni
Janelle is passionate about empowerment, connection, and compassion. She aims to use this trinity to set herself free, and would love to take you with her, but only if you want to come. When she isn’t writing and performing, she’s working at a nonprofit arts venue, remodeling her vintage camper, powerlifting, or mothering her two bright daughters. Her one-woman show, Structural Integrity: Stories from the Search for Body Autonomy, debuted in May.

Mark Modrall
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.

Doors open at 7pm. Storytelling starts at 7:30pm.
