Enjoy Saturday afternoons at Shake Rag Alley for our second staged-reading series, presenting original plays in progress on our intimate outdoor theater, Alley Stage. Besides being fun to watch, a staged reading is an important way a playwrights can get valuable feedback from an audience (you!) and determine what their next steps are with the script.
About the play Western Swing by Marnie Bullock Dresser:
A young woman travels to Montana, hoping to be named the literary executor for a young poet who has died tragically. When she arrives, she discovers the poet’s mother wants her for much more than just arranging the last poems her son wrote. This is only the first of many twists in a play that navigates ethics the same way it navigates tubing on the river – the rocks are sharp and there is blood involved.
Afternoon tea available at 3 pm (on-site, additional cost: $5)
