Idle Muse seeks women Playwrights and Directors!
The Athena Festival is a brand new project to provide a greater voice and representation for women in Chicago Theatre. Athena is the Greek goddess of reason, intelligent activity, arts and literature. Likewise, The Athena Festival will feature works by diverse women playwrights, directed by women, featuring women in prominent roles. Preference will be given to scripts that meet the Bechdel Test – in particular, stories of women overcoming the barriers laid before them to show Chicago and the world that their voice is one to be heard.

Seeking One-Act and Full Length Play Submissions by Female Playwrights Which Follow Idle Muse Theatre Company’s Mission to Present Plays Which are Transporting, Timely, and True from Varied Female Perspectives for Winter 2015 Staged Readings and Talk Backs.
