November 14th Urban Tellers®

Urban Tellers®

Next Show, November 14, 2015

Advance Tickets $15

Every month, a group of six people come together as Urban Tellers® to stand and deliver the real, true stories that they have discovered, crafted, and honed in Portland Story Theater's Art of Personal Narrative workshops. The results are highly personal and authentic narratives. You might hear stories about difficult choices, transformational life experiences, or hilarious family interactions. Whatever the story, the people that perform at these events are authentic, funny and fearless.
