7-Night Festival of Story Goodness
Continues this weekend!
Hello friends and fans of Portland Story Theater, Opening weekend of our solo festival, Singlehandedly! was held in the warm embrace of beautiful audiences who did not let the sunny weather stop them from making their way over to Hipbone Studio - the power of story pulling them into the black box performance space with eager anticipation of the personal confessions, secrets revealed, and identities claimed. It was packed.
The storytellers included Ryan Wolf Stroud, Lynne Duddy, auGi aka the SexyNurd, Kristin Olson-Huddle, Brad Clark and Joseph Boyd. Each night had a feature-length debut. Ryan Wolf Stroud told a tale of coming full circle in his quest to break free from his past. And Kristin Olson-Huddle made peace with the loss of a lifetime.
Each evening there was a different combination of stories that took the audience on a journey. Some told us their faces hurt from "trying not to cry," and others "from laughing so hard!"
Singlehandedly! continues this weekend featuring the voice of the MAX, Enrique Eduardo Andrade, telling Interpreting America With A Queer Face; PST co-founder Lawrence Howard telling The Night On The Island; Portland actor and author, Sharon 'Shay' Knorr with The H Words, Joseph Boyd, founder of Stories from The Inside, with Resurrection; and Kristin Olson-Huddle retelling Going On, which received a standing ovation on opening weekend.
May the narrative be with you!
