7 Deadly Sins:

7 Deadly Sins:

Portland's Newest Adult Storytelling Show

It's true that the Devil has all the best lines. And we have the storytellers to prove it.

The 7 Deadly Sins Show features true stories told live on stage from artists, comedians, authors, celebrities, religious leaders, and every other kind of sinner imaginable.

Every other month, we'll be bringing you tales from real-life sinners on how the road to temptation lead them into danger, laughs, exile, love, pain, pleasure, sorrow, discovery, evil, joy, death, and even redemption.

Plus: Prizes, games, pizza, and enough yummy adult beverages to make you consider going out and creating your own true story of sin!

Because inside the heart of every saint you will find virtue -- but inside the heart of every great story you will find a Deadly Sin.



American Roadtrip

American Roadtrip

7 Deadly Sins returns April 26 with five stories that answer the question, what happens when we pack up everything and head for destinations unknown?

Join us at the Mission Theater for a night of live storytelling as five very real people hit the road simply to get from here to there, and find that when you are willing to go off the map you can discover uncharted territories, unbelievable life and death situations, unintended (but hilarious) consequences, unlikely heroes, unsuspected resiliency, and, perhaps, unanticipated redemption.

And also a corpse or two.

Our roadtrippin' storytellers:

Emma Arnold: Comedian, producer, the subject of an upcoming documentary, and reformed professional hamster thief, Emma was voted Season One's Storyteller Of the Year by our fans. She is also, fwiw, the source of the 7DS team's all-purpose catchphrase, "Hamsters be f**king."

J.C. Geiger: J.C.'s bio reads like an outrageous 2 Truths & A Lie game where nothing's a lie. He is the author of Amazon Best Books of 2017's Wildman, Artistic Director of No Shame Theater, and a onetime inmate in a Bolivian prison.

Jason Sauls: If you haven't seen Jason, you've definitely heard him -- he's the voice of OPB radio. He's also a mensch.

Oz D du Soleil: Oz is the creator and host of ExcelTV, and the most fearless wearer of hats that we have ever seen.

Jennifer Aengst: Jennifer is a cultural anthropologist whose work has has taken her to Himalayan villages, Portland comic book stores, and Gandhi's ashram.

This is going to be a fantastic show. Hope to see y'all there!

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
