A Picnic & A Play, 25 September | Event in Mineral Point | A Picnic & A Play
Enjoy a picnic lunch on the Shake Rag Alley campus surrounded by gardens and historic buildings as Spring Green musician Don Greenwood performs. Then stroll to Alley Stage at 1 p.m. for a staged reading of Shelter. Written by playwright Bob Curry, the work in progress is about a high school student whose friendship with a homeless vet disrupts his family before COVID-19 arrives on the scene.

When Corey befriends a homeless vet camped in the woods near his house, he has his empathy awakened. He decides to help, which pushes his family: mother, older sister and estranged father, as well as Jed, the vet, out of their comfort zones. Into the middle of this new world arrives COVID, which turns everything upside down and calls into question the meaning of love, family, security, and how we cope with an existential peril.

The cast includes Taitlin Riley, Alexis Berget, Heather Harris, and Mo Grimm from Mineral Point; Matt Reines and Robert Russell from Madison.

Approximately 85 minutes with no intermission. Note: Strong language.

Bob Curry is an actor, playwright, screenwriter, and teacher of writing and film at Madison College. His screenplay for The Last Great Ride was produced in 1998 starring Ernest Borgnine and Eileen Brennan. He’s an avid mountain biker, swimmer, sailor, and skier. He finds himself increasingly devoted to reading and writing poetry.
