Athena – By Gracie Gardner, 4 – 23 October, 8pm, The Yard Theatre, Hackney Wick
In a New York City fencing club, warriors Athena and Mary Wallace are training for the Junior Olympics. They practice together. They compete against each other. They spend their lives together. They wish they were friends.
Following an acclaimed extended run in New York, this coming of age comedy is directed by Grace Gummer, the first recipient of the National Theatre Women of Tomorrow Directors Award.
‘A deadly serious comedy about ambition, success, and owning your superiority…
full throttle funny.’
