“Porchlight is that rare kind of production that shows us, on a fundamental level, what it is to be human."

Our 14th Anniversary Romp:



Who am I?

It's a question that never fails to amuse, confuse, bewilder, and humble us as we plunk along our journey on this earth. To what end, no one knows. To paraphrase Oliver Sacks, it is an enormous privilege and adventure to be a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet. And you are free to have canned fish for lunch every day, if you wish. 

As Porchlight celebrates fourteen years of personal storytelling onstage, we look to a theme where storytellers can choose to reflect or freak out on the whats, whys, and hows of who they think they are. 


Featuring stories by:


Bawdy storytelling maven Dixie De La Tour

Executive Strategist Karla Martin

Writer/performer/psychic hotline operator Ben McCoy

Tag team cousins author Mary Roach and bookbinder Dominic Riley
