We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Telltale Presents: What Did You Expect?

September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free – $10
Chapel Theatre, 4107 SE Harrison St, Milwaukie, OR 97222 + Google Map

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. We are a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit. We are keen on connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We are in our fifth season now, which is wild.

After a number of zoom shows…. WE ARE BACK, PAL! With an all vaccinated staff, we will be doing a series of summer shows outside of our old venue, Chapel Theatre. I said we’d do these shows until things stopped making me mad…. and well…. apparently there’s an endless series of things to be angry at in this country.

At Telltale, you can expect about 7-10 performers sharing something with you, in the way that feels right to them–so there will be a mix of comedy, stories, music, essays, and more. Your evening will likely include honesty, swear words, enthusiasm, resistance, dark humor, connection….and sometimes something unexpected. So please come and remind yourself that the world is bigger than we remembered and that you’re never alone. We are specifically focused on stories from people that can get vulnerable but also take no shit, fierce humans that know how to fight the good fight but also like naps and staying home most nights.

Also–there will be a very good raffle.
This month’s theme is “What Did You Expect?” Because it seems like we’re all taking actions and then being surprised when those actions have consequences. Performers will use that theme in their story in some way, or will at least be inspired by it somehow.

Location: The Chapel Annex, an outdoor portion of Chapel Theatre (4107 SE Harrison, Milwaukie.)
Date: September 16th.
Doors: 6:30.
Showtime: 7pm-9pm.

Tickets: Available at www.telltalepdx.com for a suggested donation of $10 but nobody is every turned away for lack of funds. Capitalism is garbage and we want you there regardless of money. The money from the tickets will be split between paying for renting the venue and paying the performers.

If you are unable to make it to the show in person, we will also be live-streaming it, so you can still participate from New York or Alaska or your bed here in town. Buy a regular ticket and we will send out a zoom link to everyone!

Raffle Money will go towards keeping the show alive–buying merch, buying raffle prizes from local companies, paying for the website, etc.

The space: Telltale has done all our in-person shows at The Chapel Theatre. These summer shows will take place outside the venue in their annex space next door. Folks will be asked to social distance/mask up/be goddamn responsible/sign a thing for contact tracing and whatever else, because Telltale staff also have some anxiety about going back to doing things in public. Bathrooms will be inside. (one on the main floor and wheelchair accessible, a bunch downstairs, all gender-less.) The space that we will be using includes one step down to access. Beverages will be sold–this is NOT a BYOB situation. Drinks will be sold (alcoholic and otherwise) by The Chapel via cash or card.(Tip your bartender!) If you’re used to buying pizza at these shows–not this time. We have to ease back in. Snacks (chips, peanuts) will be available, but for this outdoor show in particular, you’re welcome to bring your own food. Folding chairs will be provided, but if you’re wanting to bring your own chairs (for Covid reasons or for comfort reasons or whatever) you’re welcome to. It would really help us out if you’re able to buy tickets ahead of time because we’ll be asking everybody to fill out contact tracing information upon arrival if you’re buying a ticket at the door.

Also, we have no room for any oppressive garbage. So there’s that.
I think that covers it. I’ll see you there. I think you’re very cool and the event will be better with you there. I miss your damn face.
