Read & Rant - July

July 15, 2024

Online Event!

6:30pm-8:30pm MST

Athena Project’s Read & Rant program seeks to combine the sharing of theatrical work with the wider public and the new play development aspects of our former Plays In Progress Series while also fostering collaboration between playwrights and dramaturgs. Think book club for plays! Learn what makes a good script, discuss how it affects us, and explore the ways it links to the larger world. This monthly free offering to the community aims to raise awareness of the under-representation of woman, transgender and nonbinary stories on stage.

Each month, we discuss new and unproduced scripts selected from a nationwide call for submissions. Join us to converse with invited playwrights who bring an in-depth knowledge of the works and theatrical writing at large. Guided by a dramaturg, we also invite you to share your constructive comments, thoughts, and affirmations in order to aid in the development process of the pieces.

Once registered, you will receive an email with links to the scripts - we ask that these by read in advance of the event. Please read this description in full to receive information on how to access the links to scripts once you register.

This month we will be featuring:

Emily A. Beck' s Vampires

“911, what is the location of your emergency?” Step inside the control room and follow Elizabeth as she learns what it really means to be a 911 dispatcher on the midnight shift. Will she succeed? Or will the stress of the job and the toxic environment leave her wondering who to call for help?

Katherine Varga's When the Moon Blocks the Sun

Marina is horrified that her 20-year-old daughter plans to get in a rental car with strangers she met on an app to see a total eclipse six hours away. But when her daughter tragically dies, Marina takes her place. In this road trip play, Marina vows to live out her daughter's ultimate dream - even if it means confronting how little she knew about her only child.

You will receive a confirmation email with your registration AND LINKS TO ACCESS THE SCRIPTS. Please be on the lookout for this email - if you scroll down there is a section with information on our plays and links for the scripts. If you do not see this email, please check your spam folder.
