Alley Stage Reading Series: Deanna Strasse’s “Write You Down”
October 1 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
About the Play: “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.
