Read and Rant with Athena Project

Read & Rant

Read & Rant is Athena Project’s new book club, in collaboration with Tattered Cover, exploring plays written primarily by women** Read two or three scripts during the month and meet every third Monday at Tattered Cover, Colfax, to discuss the works. Learn what makes a good script; how reading a play is different than a book, a movie, or spoken word; converse with invited guests as part of our monthly discussions. 

The conversation for March will focus on prequels and sequels. Our invited guest is Lynde Rosario, the Literary Manager and Dramaturg at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) where she'll share her experiences with the recent Ibsen's A Doll's House and the sequel of that play by Lucas Hnath.

In conjunction with Week of Women, our first meeting, Monday, March 9th, from 7-9pm will begin the first of monthly free offerings to the community to raise awareness of the underrepresentation of women’s stories on stage.


Plays we will be discussing for March 9, 2020 from 7-9pm:

1) From Athena Project's 2020 Plays In Progress SeriesThe Snake God of Fiji (A Hedda Gabler Prequel) by Katherine Vondy

2) Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen

**At Athena Project, we believe that “women” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “women” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum.  We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all women, trans and gender nonconforming individuals.  

FOLLOWING READ & RANTS of 2020, will be every THIRD MONDAY from 6:30-8:30pm at the Tattered Cover Colfax.
