The Back Fence PDX: MAINSTAGE show has been playing to packed good-looking audiences since 2008. The evening features local and out of town storytellers telling true personal tales based on the night’s theme. Former storytellers range from a blood-spatter expert, a pet photographer, a park ranger, funeral director, a former Scientologist, to scientists and doctors, to New York Times best-selling authors, film actors/writers/directors, and people we’ve met on the street. MAINSTAGE stories have never been told publicly. In some cases, not even to significant others.
A cat will cross the path of all of our September stories. Think stories about the lore surrounding our feline friends, black cats, ladders, good luck or bad luck, do they know things?, moving with a cat, did one help you get through good times and/or bad, lost and found cats, inherited cats, cat haters, cat allergies... (Do you or someone you know have a compelling story on this theme: send yourself or them to our pitch page!)

FEATURING* true stories from five fantastic storytellers announced soon!


This show will feature a non-profit that focuses on helping people to fund keeping their pets with them. Suggest your favorite to us at!
