Fugitive Stories: Missed Opportunity

  • The Gallery at Villageworks 525 Massachusetts Avenue Acton, MA, 01720 United States (map)

Fugitive Stories continues its special brand of non-competitive storytelling in The Gallery at Villageworks in West Acton. 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? You can 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.

September Theme: “Missed Opportunity”


Rose Saia (Fugitive Stories co-founder)
Rose Saia won two Moth StorySLAMs and two Massmouth Story Slams in 2016, her first year as a storyteller. She has been a featured teller at WGBH, The Life is Good Kids Foundation, and The International Institute of Boston. She placed third in Boston’s 2017 Moth Grand Slam. She teaches “True Stories Told Live” workshops As a newcomer to the craft, Rose gets energized finding that common bond with an audience, but practices relaxation breathing to stop shaking before every event. Rose was one of the co-founders of Fugitive Stories.
