Directed by Noa Egozi , an Israeli director based in New York. She is interested in exploring theatre’s ability to replace indifference with compassion, certainty with doubt, and passivity with action. Noa is a founding member of Second Circle Theatre Company, where she directed Peter Turrini’s Shooting Rats and developed a one-woman adaptation of The Taming of The Shrew which received an award for best adaptation from the United Solo Festival. Other recent directing projects include the world premiere of Sylvia Khoury’s An Inferno, the world premiere of Lorne Svarc’s Chained Woman, Mud by Maria Irene Fornes, and Noa’s original five-person adaptation of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. Noa holds an MFA in directing at The New School for Drama and is a proud 2016 Drama League Directing Fellow.
Athena Theatre’s new playwriting group, Athena Writes, selected eight playwrights assembled for a one-year exploration of the theme: “A New Memory,” and centered on Athena Theatre’s commitment to supporting new work which pushes at the boundaries of live theatre.
