About Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of our 6 seasoned storytellers will be randomly drawn. To determine the random prompt for their story, they will spin the giant game show wheel. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part… each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.
