Schedule: 4-6 pm

Instructor: Deanna Strasse

Registration Deadline: Sept 30

Description

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 Write You Down by Deanna Strasse:

Write You Down is a fantasy parable, centered around Maggie Rellmers who lives in dreams. In her world, the full moon is constantly out, it’s always summer, and the dashing English actor George Marx is in love with her. Here, she can hide and dream of Bavarian kings and scoff at the world that cannot grasp what it means to live. But Maggie is about to get her wake-up call if George has anything to say about it.

  • $5

Afternoon tea available at 3 pm (on-site, additional cost: $5)
