Athena Theatre Company was created by Véronique Ory and Elizabeth Welsh in November 2002. Athena Theatre's debut production was TWO ENCOUNTERS, "Birdbath" and "Ferryboat" by Leonard Melfi. These selected one-act plays explore the theme of what it means and what it takes for people to ultimately connect in a large and often isolated world. Written in the 1960's, Melfi is adept at flashing a mirror at human interaction and connectedness that still rings true in today's modern world. The plays ran for six weeks at the Tamarind Theatre in Hollywood.
