More About URBAN TELLERS®
Every month, a group of six people come together as Urban Tellers® to stand and deliver the real, true stories that they have discovered, crafted, and honed in Portland Story Theater’s Art of Personal Narrative workshops. The results are highly personal and authentic narratives, told eye to eye, face to face, and heart to heart. Connect to the heart and soul of Portland.

Urban Tellers® stand alone on stage, fueled by the POWER OF THEIR STORIES and the ENERGY OF THE AUDIENCE. Together, tellers and listeners embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart.

Produced by Portland Story Theater
