Calling all virtual storytellers

Hey storytellers! While the shelter at home order has postponed our monthly in person show, we’re planning on hosting live, virtual Testify shows in the meantime. Stories will be a bit shorter 7 – 9 minutes with the following themes:

5/14 – Out the Window
5/28 – This is Fine
6/11 – Sold Out
6/25 – Not Here

If you’d like to tell a story, just submit a story at as usual and we will get you up in our (virtual) stage!


Picking Up Performer Spotlight: Mason Wheeless

Mason has been sober for 9.5 years after a 13-year “career” in severe alcoholism & some not so short jail/prison stints. In the time since finding sobriety & his new life, Mason has run 11 marathons & the Grand Canyon, has visited 26 countries as an avid traveler & lover of the Earth and has met & married the absolute love of his life & his partner in (non-)crime. He looks forward to a long life pursuing various passions & hopes that this evening with Testify can be the start of a new path sharing his experiences with anybody who might be able to learn from his mistakes.

Tonight, Mason will tell his tale of what he picks up after embracing accountability in his piece Crashing.


Picking Up Performer Spotlight: Kati Taylor

Kati Taylor is a first-time Testifier who will be releasing her first collection of writings this spring. She is an untamed woman of untapped talents, but so far she’s pretty good at feeding herself, traveling, raising an equally untamed daughter, replacing bathroom faucets, mangling accents, and talking about herself in the third person.

Kati comes to Testify with her tale of chemistry, conversation, and figuring out what is actually right in her piece, Love Not Lost.
