Our Tellers

At Fugitive Stories, we present “Moth-inspired True Stories Told Live” by award-winning tellers along with nervous but brave community folks who are telling their story for the first time. We often partner with local nonprofit organizations to feature their tellers who share personal stories that raise awareness or simply touch your heart. Our stories are fabulous and fresh — they are as likely to make you laugh as they are to be sweetly sentimental or disturbing. It's the best two-hour-long roller-coaster ride around. The evening is entertaining and moving as it creates intimacy and connections within the audience as they listen to stories that reflect our common humanity. No matter what our storytellers share, it's always a treat.

would you like to be a Fugitive Storyteller?

We invite a number of experienced storytellers to entertain our audiences. We also reach out to local folks — some experienced, some not — to be scheduled storytellers at our events. If you would like to tell at one of our events, click here to make a request. We'll get back to you.
