Back Fence PDX presents a new live storytelling format, RUSSIAN ROULETTE
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 (BRAND NEW GIANT wheel sponsored by Bunk Bar!) 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. Audience rounds (we ask people to volunteer, don’t worry we won’t pull out of the audience, cuz UGH.) will also be included!
STORYTELLERS for this round of Russian Roulette include: DERRICK BROWN (AUS), AUDREY KEARNS (LA), BRIAN BRADLEY (LA), ARTHUR BRADFORD (PDX), ADAM ARNOLD (PDX), JESSICA ROHEN (LA), RENEE JENKINSON (PDX), BRIAN ELLIS (PDX)
