Urban Tellers®

To paraphrase playwright, Tarell Alvin McCraney, “This is theater as community. It is holy theater not because it exalts something on high, but because for the time onstage, the audience and the storyteller are one, and all those people, though each seeing and hearing it slightly differently, are following the same course and going on a journey together.”

Portland Story Theater’s Urban Tellers®
