FUGITIVE STORIES SHOWCASES COMMUNITY “TRUST”
LOCALS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE TELL THEIR “MOTH-INSPIRED TRUE STORIES”
On Sunday, March 26th at 6:30pm Fugitive Stories explores the theme “Trust” and will shine their spotlight on Open Table, a non-profit operating in Concord and Maynard that offers a weekly community supper and food pantry. Open Table’s staff, volunteers and guests are dynamically involved in creating an atmosphere of trust, sometimes in contrast to the loss of it.
The evening will include a few of these stories as well as a story from Rep. Jen Benson, MA congressional advocate for the citizens of Acton, Ayer, Boxborough, Harvard, Lunenburg and Shirley. The remaining lineup combines spoken word performer and storyteller Jannelle Codianni with a WGBH storyteller and a fresh graduate of an AB Community Education Storytelling workshop.
Fugitive Stories monthly showcase series in Acton is held at The Gallery at Villageworks, a comfortable setting where old friends find each other or discover new ones when a story sparks a conversation. Every storytelling evening encourages audience members to tell their own short, personal story on the theme by dropping their name “in the hat” to be drawn after intermission.
“Those who join say that the room feels warm and welcoming,” said Fugitive Stories coproducer Rose Saia. “The lack of a big stage and the softness of the lights makes it feel intimate and the audience reaction after a story is always supportive.”
Fugitive Stories provides suburban audiences with entertainment and community connections through the art of “Moth-inspired True Stories Told Live” by first time tellers (who are usually fantastic) alongside deft, award winning storytellers.
