More about Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 6 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.

The audience votes for a winner at the end of the night who will receive swag and prizes from our sponsors and partners and bragging rights for life!

The winner also draws an audience winner to receive all of the above and two VIP tickets to a RUSSIAN ROULETTE show!

*Storytellers subject to change without notice. Stories may contain explicit language and/or subject matter.
