 URBAN TELLERS is a monthly story showcase that is held at the ALBERTA ABBEY on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Urban tellers stand alone on stage, fueled by the POWER OF THEIR STORIES and the ENERGY OF THE AUDIENCE. Together, tellers and listeners, embark on a

Being Present in the moment and recognizing who loves you, what matters, where you are, and when to let go ― can help you make the choices that make your life worth living. The stories you are about to hear cover a wide range of experiences that will give you some insights into the personal choices that each of these people has made.  Stories of starting flash fires in Papua New Guinea, learning what it means to die well, dropping your baby brother on his head, dreaming of hideous wedding dresses, having two mothers, liberating rivers of butterflies… it all comes back to being present. 
Tomorrow night's Urban Tellers are Ann Harris (Hood River), Howard Bulick (Bingen), Jackie McManus (White Salmon), Megan Farrell (Mosier), and Mari Matthias (Underwood), along with Portland Story Theater's Lynne Duddy (Portland). Lynne is stepping in to fill Julie Hatfield’s slot in the story lineup. We all extend our deepest sympathy to Julie and her family over the death of her dad.

LUCK OF THE IRISH is coming up this Saturday, March 12th over at the Alberta Abbey. I'm really looking forward to sharing another personal story. This one is all about growing up Irish Catholic in Portland, the resilience us Irish have, and the joy we felt when Kennedy became the first Irish Catholic president. The link below is my story from last year's show, which was our first St. Paddy's show. Enjoy.

Great review of SPELLBOUND. The place was packed and we had a blast! 
It wasn't at all surprising that two of the stories designed to frighten Portlanders involved snow storms.

This is the story that I told with Portland Story Theater at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River and with Sharon Knorr at SOLO SPEAK in Bend. This is the latest segment of my story about being adopted, what it's like reuniting after 42 years with my birth mother, and how we are building a relationship now after 18 years... the best part was watching it the other day with Eddie (Edna).

"Dude, you're on the cover of the A&E!"

That's the text we received from one of our friends the day after Thanksgiving. We were thrilled!

The November 8th #UrbanTellers  is turning into an amazing show... the theme that has organically emerged?  REINVENTION! Change means reinvention. Each time a major shift happens in our lives we have to grab a hold of who we will become or risk never reaching our full potential. Striking at the heart of personal transformation, from moving to a new city to witnessing the aftermath of destruction, these stories touch on the essential value of who we are and what really matters.  Featuring Shelley Bedell, Jeremy Lucas, Niko Moe, Robert Post, Melissa Henige, and Donna Zerner. #AlbertaAbbey   http://portlandstorytheater.strangertickets.com/Home
