More Info:

Portland Story Theater launches the fourth-annual New Works Solo Festival, Singlehandedly. Five nights of personal narrative. Real. True. Stories. It’s a rare opportunity, in this over-produced landscape we live in, to sit in a small theater and listen to a story float between you and the person on stage. This is the only festival in the country that delivers feature-length personal stories. World Premieres. Every night is different! You only get to hear these stories once, so don't miss out.

Friday April 27
Lawrence Howard shares a story of brotherly love that rivals Romulus and Remus. His story? Two Brothers. This is a tale of the tug-of-war that our hearts endure for the love of our brother.

Lynn Fitch paints a rich picture of sights, sounds, and colors in her story Marking Time, interweaving the stories of her life and the songs of the Grateful Dead. Even if you’re not a Dead Head, this is a must see!

Saturday April 28
Cory Huff tells the true story of achieving greatness in spite of, among other things, tearing off the side of his family’s home (the trailer) with a handy-dandy back hoe. His tale? Mormon Redneck Thespian.

Ryan Wolf Stroud takes us on a real-world journey through the inner workings of his family of origin, homesteaders in Alaska. You’ll experience the thrill of nature against a backdrop of loneliness, family secrets, and the search for belonging. Before it’s all over, you’ll understand That’s Why We Pray.

Singlehandedly is funded in part by a generous project grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. Guarantee your seats by buying your tickets online. Plus, if you buy by Friday, you can get a transferrable 5-Night Pass. Check out the entire lineup of artists on the festival page.

    I am also a storyteller who loves hearing short and mesmerizing accounts of lives of others … I ‘d like. To attend on Friday…to inspire the whole weekend. P.s. I love Mr. Howard.

    As I writer I am always inspired by others words and their courage to share them with strangers. I’d like to go Friday, but am totally open to Saturday as well.

    I have gone to these solo performances before, I am a big fan of Portland Story Theater. They are a rainbow of human emotions that touch my soul. So incredible to hear real personal stories that do not feel scripted or fake. Either day would be great. :)

    Though I listen to storytelling podcasts such as StoryCorps and Snap Judgement nonstop, I have yet to attend a live storytelling event. I finally have the weekend off and would be thrilled to see some great stuff up close and personal.

    Stories fuel our lives. Performances of those stories etch them onto more of our senses. I love story telling and the nuanced formation of imagination they afford me. I’d love to attend Saturday night’s performance!

    Without getting to hear Ryan Wolf Stroud’s Story on the 28th, I’ll never know why we pray! Please let me find out!
