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.

Fugitive Stories brings the craft of true stories told live to suburban audiences. In each location (Acton, Arlington, Framingham — and now, Concord), Fugitive brings 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’s featured tellers captivate our audiences — they are some of the best in the country. Most are Moth StorySLAM winners and many are GrandSLAM champions. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a five- to six-minute 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.
