Portland Story Theater launches the fourth-annual New Works Solo Festival, Singlehandedly. Five nights of personal narrative. Real. True. Stories. It’s a rare opportunity, in this over-produced landscape we live in, to sit in a small theater and listen to a story float between you and the person on stage. This is the only festival in the country that delivers feature-length, in-depth personal stories. World premieres that are sure to take you on a journey! You only get to hear these stories once, so don’t miss out.
Friday April 27
Lawrence Howard shares a story of brotherly love that rivals Romulus and Remus. His story? Two Brothers. This is a tale of the tug-of-war that our hearts endure for the love of our brother. 
Lynn Fitch paints a rich picture of sights, sounds, and colors in her story Marking Time, interweaving the stories of her life and the songs of the Grateful Dead. Even if you’re not a Dead Head, this is a must see!
Saturday April 28
Cory Huff tells the true story of escaping a life that included, among other things, tearing off the side of his family’s home (the trailer) with a handy-dandy back hoe. His tale? Mormon Redneck Thespian.
Ryan Wolf Stroud takes us on a real-world journey through the inner workings of his family of origin, homesteaders in Alaska. You’ll experience the thrill of nature against a backdrop of loneliness, family secrets, and the search for belonging. Before it’s all over, you’ll understand That’s Why We Pray.
Next Weekend 
Friday May 4
Eric Stern shares the story of the man who trained his voice, James Wiest; the man who taught him about opera, drinking, and shaped his artistic life. Plaid Shirt Maestro
Penny Walter gives us a glimpse of her early life; a life that nurtured her dreams and gave her the wherewithal to make those dreams a reality. Roots and Wings 
Saturday May
Lynne Duddy tells the story of
growing up in N-NE Portland in the 60s and 70s as the world changed around her on both the macro and a micro level. Wabi-Sabi White Girl
Michele Carlo takes you on a journey from her New York experience, growing up half Puerto Rican to semi-quasi sorta' kinda' fair-to-middling respectable success as a writer and a performer. Fish Out of Agua. 
May the narrative be with you!
Lynne, Lawrence, and Penny
