Patio party celebrates Stories on Stage Davis’ first season

Stories on Stage Davis will celebrate the end of its first season with a summer patio party Saturday at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. with dramatic reading of “This Flesh, This Ghost” by author Lynn Freed and “Walking Tour: Rohnert Park” by Molly Giles. The suggested donation is $5.

Freed’s story “This Flesh, This Ghost” is included in a collection that she began during her 2002 fellowship with the Camargo Foundation. The title of the collection, “An Error of Desire,” is inspired by the relationship between desire and power.

Freed, a professor of English at UC Davis and a native of Durban, South Africa, has published six novels as well as numerous stories and essays that have appeared in The New Yorker, The Santa Monica Review and the Washington Post.

Giles, author of “Walking Tour: Rohnert Park,” has received numerous awards for her short fiction, including the Spokane Prize, the Flannery O’Connor Award and the California Book Award. In a September 2000 online review, The New York Times praised her first novel, “Iron Shoes,” as “… witty, with keen comic timing and a graceful sense of economy.”

The featured stories will be performed by Kellie Raines and Kelley Ogden, two actors affiliated with the Sacramento-based fringe theater company, KOLTRun Creations. Raines will read Freed’s “This Flesh, This Ghost,” and Ogden will read “Walking Tour: Rohnert Park.”

In addition to serving as an associate with KOLTRun Creations, Raines holds a bachelor’s degree in dramatic art from UC Davis and is a producer with the Davis Shakespeare Ensemble. Ogden, co-founder of KOLTRun Creations, holds a bachelor of fine arts in performance from DePaul University and has collaborated with the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival, Big Idea Theatre and Capitol Stage.

Since first launching in September 2013, Stories on Stage Davis has featured more than 30 original works of short fiction at its monthly second Saturday events. Stories on Stage Davis will return to the Pence Gallery for its second season in September.
