ATHENA PROJECT FESTIVAL presents Sheltered by Catherine Wiley

In the Fox Studio Theatre

The play takes place in temporary homeless shelter for women in Denver and unfolds over a single day, with choral interludes by different homeless women illustrating the complexities of their lives. One of the main characters, Martha, volunteers as a way of searching for her mother, who has moved in and out of addiction and homelessness for much of Martha's life. With the help of Cassie and Tiffany, Martha reconnects with her mother, Helen, in an effort to bring her home. They discuss and debate the origins of their predicament, the realities of living on the receiving end of charity, and their hopes for the future.

ATHENA PROJECT FESTIVAL presents Harm's Way by Marilyn Harris Kriegel

In the Fox Studio Theatre

It's the first decade of the 21st century when the United States, shocked by terrorism, tries to protect itself from further attack. Maggie Leeds, confused and disoriented, arrives in Paris on a visit to her son and his new wife. It's entirely unclear from the shreds of her bizarre travel tale whether she is a muddled, jetlagged older woman or a national security risk; whether a career as a science fiction writer, or something far darker, is responsible for her improbable story. Harm's Way explores paranoia and denial and questions whether we have become dangerously desensitized to violence and iniquity.

ATHENA PROJECT FESTIVAL presents The Draper's Eye by Fengar Gael

In the Fox Studio Theatre

From her apartment in the Garment District of New York, Penelope Melton, a violinist, speaks to hidden cameras recording her every move. She recounts the decline of her dying sister, Portia, who spends hours staring out a window facing Spindle's Fabric Shop. Portia notices that the feeble and infirm women who enter the shop never leave, so she entreats Penelope to investigate. Once inside the shop, Penelope meets Katrina Spindle and her handsome nephew, Siegfried, a former physics prodigy who asks Penelope to play her violin. While she complies, he falls desperately in love. Gazing out her window, and fearing for Penelope's life, Portia leaves the apartment and ventures into the shop. Relieved that her sister is unharmed, Portia meanders around, admiring the fabrics, then suddenly disappears. A police investigation ensues, and both Siegfried and Penelope become suspects. Siegfried attempts to prove the existence of folds in a fabric that lead through unseen dimensions to a parallel universe.
