Enjoy a picnic lunch on the Shake Rag Alley campus surrounded by gardens and historic buildings as local musicians provide entertainment before strolling the short path to Alley Stage at 1 pm for a staged-reading of Cassandra, a work in progress by local playwright Jan Levine Thal.
Jan Levine Thal is a mother, a writer, a theater activist, more or less in that order. She comes from a family of musicians – as a result, sound is a very important part of her plays. Jan has written three full-length plays that have been produced on the stage and a passel of shorter ones. She co-founded the Kathie Rasmussen Women’s Theatre in Madison, which fosters work written and directed by women. Though now retired from 11 years as artistic director of that company, she continues to support its work and looks forward to its new incarnation post-COVID. Her novel, Bone Deep, was published recently by Van Velzer press. Learn more: janlevinethal.com
