Ethan Gilsdorf and more Mortified Boston with the angst of their younger selves

Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks author Ethan Gilsdorf rounded out the five storytellers compelled to share on stage Friday night at the Oberon in Cambridge.

Robin Sitten walked us through a five-part sketch of a baked-beans-loving kidnapper, while others, including Gilsdorf, read from their teen journals. One woman read from her younger self’s visions of being a fairy in a past life. A boy who wrote poems about an unreachable girl. A sexually active girl suddenly fraught by the fear of disease. And Gilsdorf’s story of awkwardly exploding, oozing, flowing sexual tension along an abroad trip from India to Japan. See photos below.
