About Fugitive Stories

Why storytelling matters

“Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving.” Madeleine L’Engle

We are hard-wired, perhaps at a genetic level, to tell and listen to stories. Stories pass a legacy between generations and are a way in which we form relationships in the here and now. While storytelling is entertainment, it is so much more. It is an art form as old as humanity. It is the primary way that we relate to each other to create kinship and community. Storytelling is a way in which we give a bit of ourselves to others and a way in which we feel less alone. Humanity's earliest stories were about survival, hope, loss, love, and courage. Today’s stories echo the same themes.

STORYTELLING IN West ACTOn, Arlington & Framingham

Fugitive Stories presents “Moth-inspired True Stories Told live“ — non-competitive storytelling events in Acton, Arlington, and Framingham. Fugitive Stories was founded by producer David Gerratt and storyteller Rose Saia to bring the craft of true stories told live to suburban audiences. In each location we bring featured storytellers to tell a true tale alongside people just like you who may never have told a story on a stage but are inspired by one of our themes. Fugitive Stories featured tellers captivate our audiences — they are some of the best in the country. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a short story on our theme to drop their name in our hat — we pull a name or two after intermission.  Each night is unique and they never fail to entertain.

Hearing a true story in a live performance is fun, moving and transformative. Fugitive Stories evenings Intimately reveal what we all have in common, making people feel more human and more alive. You'll laugh and sometimes shed a few tears. Every event opens a door to a memory, a new friend or to your heart.

Check our Calendar for details of each event and to purchase tickets. Events appear in the Calendar approximately one month in advance.
