    I’ve been wanting to attend a Back Fence PDX show for awhile now!

  9. Yasmine May 28, 2015 at 2:18 pm #

    This would be really entertaining and a fun way to kick off the weekend. Who doesn’t love listening to the sins of others?!!!

  10. Aleksandra May 28, 2015 at 2:22 pm #

    This sounds fun, and interesting.

  11. Eliza G. May 28, 2015 at 2:26 pm #

    I really need to attend to brush up on my deadly sins. Aren’t they: thou shall not suck the toes of thee partner, because gross. Thou shall not wear yoga pants on the daily, because cammel toe. Thou shall not drink from the bottle, because class. Thou shall not lie, right Rob? Thou shall not listen to Nickelback and like it. Thou shall dress to kill, but not actually kill. And thou shall not be a mistress, because Beyoncé said put a ring on it.

    What a fun night this would be! I always enjoy new things, and this, going to Alberta Abbey, is new to me. Going to hear stories told by others, not new, but guaranteed interesting! Thank you in advance!

  13. Donna May 28, 2015 at 4:14 pm #

    This would be a great night of storytelling!

  14. Leisl May 28, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

    Aren’t the 7 deadly sins also the 7 most common aspects of modern humanity.

  15. ryan May 28, 2015 at 10:36 pm #

    I want to win because back fence is the bestest!

  16. Dana G May 29, 2015 at 4:31 am #

    I’ve been to a Backfence show before and loved it!! I would love the opportunity to attend again- especially this show topic

  17. Allison May 29, 2015 at 8:29 am #

    I’m visiting Portland and need some fun things to do!

  18. david May 29, 2015 at 12:28 pm #

    i know we’ll be swinging by tonalli’s before/after to satiate the eighth deadly sin: their chocolate-covered fried banana bar!

  19. Megan Lane May 29, 2015 at 2:14 pm #

    We saw PDX Back Fence’s Russian Roulette recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. They spoke of this event and we really want to catch it!

  20. Airreck May 30, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

    I need to see how my vices stack up against the world. I’ll start local.

  21. ashley May 30, 2015 at 11:56 pm #

    Cause I loves me some stories!

  22. Hipi May 31, 2015 at 5:39 am #

    Coming to PDX to visit my daughter who lives there. We are both published writers and live in the stories of everyday and otherworldly life. It’s too late to get VIP tickets and we would love to come together on June 5th!

  24. Kim June 1, 2015 at 2:17 pm #

    This sounds awesome, I’ve never been to one of their shows before but always want to.

  25. Donna June 1, 2015 at 6:40 pm #

    As a storyteller myself, as well as an expert on all seven deadly sins, I am lusting after a pair of free tickets, which I would be proud to use (though my greed makes me want TWO pairs). If I don’t get to go I’ll be really angry and envious of the winner, but will console myself with a gluttonous visit to Salt and Straw and a slothful night spent bingewatching Amy Schumer videos.

  26. Sache June 2, 2015 at 11:59 am #

    I’ve never gone to this event before but have always wanted to check it out.

  27. Bliss June 2, 2015 at 1:35 pm #

    I’m gearing up to spend the weekend with some right-wing, evangelical family members on Saturday and Sunday and would dearly appreciate the opportunity to inoculate my partner and myself against their shame- and fear-based rhetoric by reveling in some “sin” the evening before! Please give me the tickets so we may relax and enjoy ourselves with some good natured heathen humor!

  28. Anna S June 3, 2015 at 10:39 pm #

    Envy is my sin of choice.

  29. Leila June 4, 2015 at 2:24 pm #

    Yes please!!!

  30. Grace June 4, 2015 at 2:30 pm #

    sounds super interesting! I’m a lousy storyteller, I love hearing people skilled at it

  31. Walker June 4, 2015 at 3:23 pm #

    Please please please

  32. jASON June 4, 2015 at 4:24 pm #

    I’m really into sin, so I’d love to go!

  33. Michelle June 4, 2015 at 5:00 pm #

    Sinful Living!

  34. jim June 4, 2015 at 7:49 pm #

    It would be a sin to miss this.

  35. terah June 5, 2015 at 7:03 am #

    I would like to introduce my fiance to great local theatre. He is from England and thinks London is the only place that has live performances worth going to.

  36. Terri June 5, 2015 at 10:31 am #

    This sounds so cool, pick me please

  37. Kevin June 7, 2015 at 1:21 pm #
