The first Back Fence PDX story telling show of 2012 takes place on Monday, January 23.
Story telling show? How’s that work?:
Our Back Fence Storytelling event is the kissing cousin to San Francisco’s Porchlight Storytelling Series. It is an evening with seven people telling true, unmemorized ten-minute stories based on the month’s theme. The stories must not have been performed publicly prior to their Back Fence PDX telling.
Heather and I have thoroughly enjoyed the several Back Fence PDX productions we’ve been to. For one thing free cupcakes from Saint Cupcake make the rounds at intermissions. The story tellers are always courageous and their stories are often amusing, always entertaining, and sometimes gut wrenching or cringe inducing – you really don’t know what to expect!
And, thanks to a generous grant from Portland Center Stage, admission to this installment of Back Fence PDX is FREE – tickets will become available on Tuesday, January 3 at 10am!
