Read & Rant – Virtual Book Club featuring plays by women

May 18 @ 6:30 pm

Read & Rant is the Athena Project’s new book club presented in collaboration with the Tattered Cover Bookstore exploring plays written primarily by women. Prior to the gathering, the audience is invited to read two or three scripts and meet every third Monday 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 the monthly discussions and share opinions. These monthly FREE offerings to the community aim to raise awareness of the under-representation of women’s stories on stage.

The plays on May 18th, 2020 will focus on varied aspects of military life in conjunction with National Armed Forces Day, May 16th, an annual salute to all branches of the US military. As one of the playwrights this month is Denver based, the invited guests are Colorado playwrights who will speak to the art and craft of playwriting.
Play Names: “The Invisible Tribe” by Mikaley Osley, “Rojava” by Sharon Farrell, and “Secret Skies: Songs and Letters from the Longest War” by Michelle Ruehl
Facilitators: Darce Beck and Maru Garcia
Guests: Mikaley Osley and Michelle Ruehl
