I live here

One year ago, Portuguese Artists Colony staged an intervention at Fivepoints Arthouse.  We have been corrupting the youth, lowering the tone and rousing the rabble on a monthly basis ever since. And we're just getting started.

Come on over to our place on the 27th. There will be cake.

Beth Lisick is the author of four books, including the New York Times bestseller Everybody Into the Pool and the national bestseller Helping Me Help Myself. Her work as been published in the Christian Science Monitor, Best American Poetry and heard on the NPR program This American Life. She is also the founder and curator of Porchlight, a monthly show for amateur storytellers in San Francisco. She’s currently working on a monologue about appearing in a series of Midwestern bank commercials.

Tim Bauer  is a playwright. He’s been a three-time finalist for the Heideman Award, a PlayGround fellow, a Lark Playwright’s Week finalist, a STAGE International finalist, and is the San Francisco Bay Area regional rep of the Dramatists Guild.  Tim is hilarious.

Musical guest: Brad A

Champions of live writing
The winners from previous shows will meet for an epic re-match!

Four quick-witted authors will write on a prompt they hear for the first time onstage while you watch them sweat, swear, and get inspired. Each writer will read what he/she wrote, and you get to vote on the winning piece.

This edition may be the first-ever Skype-enabled live writing. Daniel Heath will be kicking back in the tropics, but is willing to Skype in for the big rematch. Cross your fingers that his grass hut has decent internet connectivity!

Andrew O. Dugas won November's zipper malfunction with God must love me tonight.
Daniel Heath is the most recent victor from February's awesome, star-shod heat.
Caitlin Myer won September's show with a cautionary tale about mixing sex with business. And guns.
Matt Stewart kept January's winning story all in the twisted, drug-addled family with a raucous ride to prison.

PLUS! Readings from the Colonists who make it all happen every month: Leslie Ingham, Caitlin Myer, Cary Tennis and Benjamin Wachs.
