We’re excited to announce another round of fast-paced Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE storytelling! This time around we’re part of DESIGN WEEK PORTLAND! Featuring a host of RR regulars mixed in with some of Portland’s best designers.

Russian Roulette was created by Host/Exec Producer of the Back Fence PDX: Mainstage show and series, B. Frayn Masters, in January 2013 and has sold out every show since. Experienced storytellers from all walks of life have just 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story!

Storytellers include: The winner from our August show from 105.1 The Buzz, DARIA ELIUK (PDX), along with returning storytellers Write Bloody Publisher, DERRICK BROWN (AUS), New York Times Bestselling Author, BETH LISICK (NY), Owner and Chef at Noble Rot plus two time past Russian Roulette winner, LEATHER STORRS (PDX) Nationally Acclaimed Fashion Designer, ADAM ARNOLD (PDX) along with newcomers — the Designer Behind Much Adored betsy + iya Jewelery, BETSY CROSS (PDX), Graphic Designer + Songwriter, EMILY OVERSTREET (PDX), and Co-Founder of Buy Olympia + Curator of Land Gallery, PAT CASTALDO (PDX)!

Music by BOBBY from Sex Life DJs


How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. 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.

At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life. The winner will be invited to come back to the next show! And one lucky audience member will also win some prizes!
