Author Deborah L. Parker had it right when she said, “Sometimes we have to inspire and encourage ourselves, through our personal narrative. And we start with what we know.” The stories that people tell at Urban Tellers® are personal narratives shaped by the truth and perspective of the present moment.

Every Urban Tellers® show has 6 tellers who each have 10-12 minutes to share an amusing, touching, often surprising story. Poignant. Funny. True. This month’s Urban Tellers® show features Donna Zerner, Brad Clark, Gillian Summers, Jim Fairchild, Sami Auclair and Sarah Willis with stories about fumbling around in the dark to find your light, loving your dad’s boyfriend, and conjuring the courage to do what you need to do.

“Ordinary people; extraordinary stories.”

Hosted by Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy

Produced by Portland Story Theater

      oh dear, Anne… that’s not what this is about

      It’s more like: Stories that give the spirit a lift and soothe the soul.

    Stories, we all have them but who has the courage to go up on stage and share them with hundreds of strangers? Urban Tellers do! Thanks for sharing a part of your lives with us!
