Aside from the (apparently all night) DWP closing party, at which otherwise responsible members of the community got large tattoos, Back Fence PDX at Disjecta last night put a bird on it (DWP) for 2014. It was a sold out night of design-related stories from an all star cast.
Here comes August.
And with it, three new Back Fence PDX shows to look forward to.
If you’ve been tracking this brainchild of B. Frayn Masters, you know they have recently moved from the Mission Theater to Hollywood Theatre for some of their events. Others still happen at the gorgeous NoPo gem Disjecta.
So when the fireball goes down at night and you’re looking for action – Back Fence PDX has you covered.
Friday, August 15
Saturday, August 16

Never been to Back Fence PDX? Here’s what you’ve been missing…
Well, here it comes. For the first weekend in April, there is quite a surge of activity from Portland’s improv, storytelling, and comedy crews coming at you.
Action/Adventure, The Liberators, and Back Fence PDX all have new stuff for you. If you tip toe carefully enough through the spring tulips, you can see MOST of it.
Start things off Thursday night with a double shot (at 8 and 10) at Action/Adventure. Friday you could catch The Liberators at IFCC. Saturday, it’s a special Back Fence PDX show at Hollywood Theatre.
And remember that SIDEKICKS is the new serial comedy from Action/Adventure running in four episodes over the next four weeks.

4.5 Back Fence PDX – DON’T BOX ME IN at Mission Theater
Monday night in the Gerding Theater, it was Back Fence PDX.
They were packed in last night for another Back Fence PDX extravaganza.
But with a sold out Back Fence PDX special evening tonight at PCS, it’s going to be plenty warm inside.
They’re here. They’re there. They’re everywhere.
“They” are Back Fence PDX and Executive Producer B. Frayn Masters.
And “they” specialize in creating sold out evenings of live storytelling fun.
Next up: A special show on the PCS mainstage this Monday. It’s a mere $5 to get in. So it’s basically free.
But wait – it’s sold out.
So with luck you already got yourself a ticket.
