Kick off the Alley Stage Reading Series with our Friday season opener featuring a play-in-progress from our series artistic director (and Mineral Point’s own!) Marcia Jablonski as part of the World Premiere Wisconsin festival. Running March through June, the state-wide theater festival celebrates plays and musicals across the state, from fully produced major productions, to readings and plays in progress, to regional and community theater. The festival’s goals include building relationships between theaters, raising awareness of theater in the state, and encouraging the production of new plays.

Following the reading by local cast members, stay for the talkback session and reception on the Art Cafe patio featuring live music, complimentary nibbles and a cash bar.

About The Last Hotel: While waiting out a blizzard in a luxury hotel, an art student, her professor, and a hotel employee are trying to determine how much intervention they should act on with the street artist they are trying to keep safe from the storm.

Marcia Jablonski lives in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Her produced works include The Front Steps, Rumors of Truth, The Great Jimmy Boyle, and A New Voice in Politics. Her awards include Wisconsin Wrights New Play Project, New Works of Merit Playwriting Contest, NYC; Elizabeth George Foundation Grant for Emerging Playwrights; and New Works Development Residency, Madison. She is currently an artistic director at Shake Rag Alley, where she conceived of and helps produce the annual Alley Stage Reading Series. Marcia is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America. Her children’s book, All of You, is being published in 2023.
