Stories on Stage Davis to release Episode 3 of new podcast

On Saturday, July 11, Stories on Stage Davis is releasing the third episode of its twice-a-month podcast, which features a single and actor pairing. Despite the moratorium on live events, the literary series remains committed to bringing excellent short stories and captivating readings to its audience.

Episode 3 of the podcast will feature “Alibi,” by Sam Schieren, read by J.R. Yancher.

In “Alibi,” the enigmatic narrator spends his night off barhopping, landing in the very nightclub in which he works with a new, talkative acquaintance. Even being drunk in his surreal, exciting environment, and being told unbelievable stories, the narrator remains closed off, desensitized to the grittiness of New York City’s nightlife — and life in general.

Sam Schieren is a writer from Nyack, N.Y. He is a founding editor of “Pink Monkey Magazine” and received his master’s degree in creative writing at UC Davis.

J.R. Yancher

Reading Schieren’s “Alibi” is J.R. Yancher, who last read for the Season 4 opening gala of the series in 2016. J.R. holds a bachelor’s degree in original works from Cornish College of the Arts, and an associate’s degree in acting from The Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts.

Before founding Bike City Theatre Company in his 凯发体育官方sporthometown of Davis, he worked for more than a decade as an actor, director and creative consultant for the Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Pacific Conservatory Theatre, Seattle Immersive Theatre and Davis Shakespeare Festival, among others, and in regional and national commercials as well as short films.

New episodes of the Stories on Stage Davis podcast air every second and fourth Saturday. New and previous episodes are available on the Stories on Stage Davis website, and regular podcast listeners can also subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and Google Play. Stories on Stage Davis is a sponsored project of YoloArts, a nonprofit arts organization.
