Win Tickets to Back Fence PDX's "Russian Roulette"

Posted by Alison Hallett on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 2:46 PM


I have two pairs of tickets to give away to "Russian Roulette," the newest show from the brainiacs behind Portland storytelling series Back Fence, PDX.

This marks the debut of a new format for Back Fence: A theme will be selected by the audience from a pre-determined list, and a storyteller will be chosen at random to tell a true five-minute story on that theme.

As an added bonus, it'll be the first public appearance of Sarah Mirk as a former employee of the Mercury—Sarah's joined in the storytelling lineup by graphic novelist Nicole J. Georges (who's reading from her new book tonight at Powell's), Bad Reputation Productions' Shelley McLendon, The Making of South Park: 6 Days to Air director Arthur Bradford, designer Adam Arnold, and others.

The show is tomorrow night at the Mission Theater; to win tickets, email me with "Russian Roulette" in the subject line by 10 am tomorrow. Winners will be emailed by 10:30 or so.
