Real. True. Stories

URBAN TELLERS® is a story showcase held at the ALBERTA ABBEY
Everyone who participates in Urban Tellers has taken our workshop, The Art of Personal Narrative. These are people from our urban community —- people just like you —- who have worked to discover and craft their stories.

This Urban Tellers features Gillian Summers, Brad Clark, Donna Zerner, Jim Fairchild, and Sami Auclair who will tell their own personal stories.

Urban tellers stand alone on stage, fueled by the POWER OF THEIR STORIES and the ENERGY OF THE AUDIENCE. Together, tellers and listeners, embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart. Exhilarating. Energizing. Empowering.

Our Process:  Our stories are co-created in a collaborative environment. All stories are told extemporaneously — No notes! No memorized scripts!

Listener Discretion Advised:  Portland Story Theater's stories may contain explicit language, assorted escapades of a questionable nature, and various examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations, and moments of truth, triumph, and transformation.

By attending this event, you are giving permission on behalf of yourself and/or each person in your group for Portland Story Theater, Inc. to use your image/audio clips for the sole purpose of future promotional materials without compensation or further permission.
