Dear Friend of PST, It's a new year and we're delighted to announce a glorious, all-new lineup of real, true stories. Advance tickets are still only $15. We can't wait to see you at our next show at our fabulous home, the Alberta Abbey.
This past year we had the great fortune to work with so many beautiful people who created an amazingly electic body of work. There were so many good stories it was almost impossible to narrow it down. But as we begin a new year, we want to share ten of our 2014 favorites with you. These stories -- and many others -- are available for viewing on our YouTube channel. Many can be downloaded as Podcasts from our new SoundCloud channel. Subscribe to both and don't miss a thing. Enjoy!

Check out our monthly Urban Tellers, where, in the words of one of our recent storytellers, "you don't have to be perfect to be heard." Our urban tellers are fueled by the power of their stories and the energy of the audience. Listeners are invited to embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart. The February show features Donna Zerner, Raahi Reddy, Jeremy Lucas, Jessica Joy, Michelle Reynolds, Sabina Hague. Hosted by Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard.

The Portland Blind Cafe, is a ‘pop-up event’, a mind bending / heart opening experience where the audience indulges in a vegetarian ‘Sensory Tasting Experience' prepared by a local Chef, participates in a Q & A with their blind wait staff and enjoys a concert of original music…all in the pitch dark. This is NOT just another dinner in the dark…it’s a community experience where people connect, learn and grow from working together to participate in something greater than themselves. The Portland Blind Cafe is designed to help you feel more alive, awake, present and connected to your world. We partner with the local blind organizations to raise awareness and benefit the local blind community.
