BACK FENCE PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE
June 20th, 2013
No Lies. No Notes. No Time.
Back Fence PDX presents a new live storytelling format! The last show was SRO so get your tickets early and often.
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. (A new wheel sponsored by Bunk Bar is being built as we write!) One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass! If they pass another teller can steal their prompt! Then the risky part: each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt!!! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare!
At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life.
