The stories that people tell at Urban Tellers® are personal narratives shaped by the truth and perspective of the present moment.

Every month, a group of 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 workshop.

The results are highly personal and authentic narratives, told eye to eye, face to face, and heart to heart. You might hear stories about difficult choices, transformational life experiences, or hilarious family interactions. You can expect the results to be authentic, funny and honest.

Produced by Portland Story Theater
