Potatoes in the washing machine. A sawed-off shotgun. Astrocartography. Back-biting. A kiss on the cheek… all these woven together into a story theater show that promises to be memorable and historic as we bid a fond farewell to Hipbone, our beloved home for the last eight seasons. Always a potent blend of vulnerability and heart, this is story theater that is: Exhilarating. Energizing. Empowering.

Urban Tellers: Daniel LaForce, Steve Parker, Angela Bailey, Beth Weissman, Phillip Schlachter and Jeff Burke.

The show runs about 2 hours with intermission. Admission always includes free hors d’oeuvres! Beverages are available for purchase when the doors open at 7 p.m. with wine $6, beer $4 (21+)

Get your tickets today. This show is sure to sell out! General seating tickets are $20 at the door, space permitting.


Our Process: 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. No notes. No lies. No memorized scripts.

Listener Discretion Advised: Portland Story Theater’s stories may contain “colorful” language, sexual escapades of a questionable nature and numerous examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations and moments of truth, triumph and transformation.

Image Waiver: Videos, photographs, and audio clips are taken at all performances to be used for future promotional material. 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.

Portland Story Theater, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to making the narrative arts an integral part of Portland’s rich cultural identity and is committed to bringing an authentic story and theater experience to inspire, challenge and expand a sense of community in Portland’s urban environment.

    I’m not sure how I missed this group before now! I live for podcasts like The Moth and StoryCorps … How wonderful to know we have our own local twist. As a former journalist and avid story listener, I would love to attend this event!

    I’ve been attending Urban tellers since the beginning, so sad to hear it’s moving on from Hipbone. I’d love to see the final hurrah….not to mention there is this beautiful lady I’d love to take out for a fun night…

      Well, that’s one way to describing Portland Story Theater… Real. True. Stories.

    Sounds like a most worthy escape from the lovely children who occupy so much of my mental space in the homestead. ;-)
