Stories on Stage Sacramento will be dabbling in dystopia and tinkering with time with novelist Maggie Shen King, author of An Excess Male, and Davis writer Scott Alumbaugh. Yes, it’s a science fiction evening! No aliens or spaceships though — just two terrific imaginations at the top of their game.
From An Excess Male: Imagine it’s China, sometime in the future — and the One Child policy has left the country with forty million excess males and they all want wives. Or, from “San Andreas Fault” by Scott Alumbaugh: imagine you’re driving along the San Andreas fault with a guy you’re kind of sick of, and pick up a hitchhiker who seems vaguely familiar. Stories on Stage is thrilled to present two stories you won’t be able to forget from two amazing imaginations.
Reading by Matthew Hanjoong and Ethan Ireland.
