On a hot October day, after the sudden passing of their mother, the Pereira family siblings come together after more than a year of separation. At the behest of youngest sibling, Belinda, the three surviving children gather to witness the cremation of their deceased mother. As the family gathers over the holiday season, they are forced to face their differences while also deciding what to do with their mother’s ashes. On Christmas Eve, Belinda finds her perfect solution to bring them together and return their mother’s ashes to her native land. But when Belinda reveals what she has done with the ashes, all hell breaks loose and the enormity of their loss leads to utter chaos in the home.

Athena envisions a world where women’s voices are powerfully expressed and recognized for artistic merit in the community. Athena Project's mission is to empower women and strengthen the Denver community through developing and showcasing women and girls' artistic contributions, while inviting new audiences into the creative process. Each Spring, Athena Project produces an Arts Festival that includes theatre, dance and music highlighting the contributions of women artists. In the Fall, we produce a Premiere Production which is selected from one of the plays workshopped during the Festival. Girls Create, is our summer intensive where we highlight various art forms in a week long camp culminating in a final performance to be shared with friends, family, and the public.
