How it works: Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the giant Bunk Bar 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! THIS IS NEW: A lucky audience member will win prizes as well!

This time around the majority of the storytellers are from the design field, because, you know, DESIGN WEEK!

Our storytellers for this round include ADAM ARNOLD (Fashion Designer), KATE BINGAMAN-BURT (Designer, Illustrator), SHELLEY McLENDON (Actor, Producer), LEATHER STORRS (Chef), NICOLE J. GEORGES (Illustrator), BARBARA HOLM (Comedian), AARON RAYBURN (Designer, Art Director), + Wm. STEVEN HUMPHREY (Writer)

Hosted by B. Frayn Masters + Mindy Nettifee with music by Sex Life DJ Bobby

    I’ve heard BackFence is fun and I have yet to go to a Secret Society event. Let’s do it.

    Back Fence PDX is by far one of the most awesome things to do in Portland, and I’ve never seen the “Russian Roulette” version. I am a designer, and very excited about DWP, so this session is particularly interesting to me. Also, I’m familiar with one of the speakers: I know Kate Bingaman-Burt from my Alma Mater, PSU, and it would be a treat to see her in a different environment and under pressure to perform :) Make me laugh!

    I LOVE hearing stories.

    I would love to attend because I love stories, and I’ve never been to a live storytelling event. I listen to the Moth podcast, but would love to hear stories in a local setting.

    This seems very interesting and I have never been to this place before!

    Totally want to do this! I’m an up and coming fashion designer so this is right up my ally. And who doesn’t love story time?!?

    -Just returned from six months as a fire lookout on the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest. Was furloughed just days before being laid off. I’m back, living out of moving boxes for the moment, and in need of social interaction, fun, and inspiration!~

    Yes it’s tonight!! Portland Storytelling!

    Good old live entertainment through story telling. With a twist? Brilliant.
