Experience the heart and soul of Portland with real, true stories from Portland Story Theater! 

Often described as "a new breed of literary event," Portland Story Theater is the Pacific Northwest's premier showcase for true, personal stories told face-to-face, eye-to-eye, and heart-to-heart. No scripts, no notes, just the teller and the audience and the words. Ten minutes. Go! Hosted by Portland Story Theater's Founders, Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard, this LitCrawl® event features three of audience favorites: Penny Walter, Beth Rogers and Warren McPherson. The theme is Making Lists and Taking Risks, amazing narratives of transitioning from one place in your life to another.
