New England Premiere

“Hugely appealing and stealthily moving”
The New York Times

Mary Wallace and Athena are brave, and seventeen, and fencers, and training for the Junior Olympics. They practice together, they compete against each other, they spend their lives together. They wish they were friends.

Appropriate for ages 14 and up.

Limited Run:

Jul 14-Aug 6, 2022

Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance
440 Main Street
Ridgefield, CT 06877

“Fierce and lovely… Parts of it cut so close to lived female experience… that they hardly feel like fiction at all.”

New York Times Critic’s Pick »

“A remarkably assured and insightful work.”

Theatre is Easy »

“[A] deeply-felt drama that underscores female friendship… Most of all, these girls are funny and we lean forward, wanting to know more about them.”
