Athena is a “fierce and lovely” coming of age comedy about the rivalry and friendship of two teenage athletes. Mary Wallace and Athena are brave, and seventeen, and fencers, and training for the Junior Olympics. They practice together, they compete against each other, they spend their lives together. They wish they were friends.
First performed in 2018, Athena is a New York Times Critic’s Pick: “A deadly serious comedy about ambition, success, and owning your superiority. In it’s delicate ferocity, it shows a playwright who is full throttle funny and wise beyond her years.” The play is deemed “wily and entertaining.” by the Village Voice.
