After being abandoned as a child and raised by hunters, Atalanta becomes the fastest and most skilled hunter in all of Arcadia. But when a suitor challenges her to a race, Atalanta must decide between her fiercely independent spirit and the possibility of love and companionship.

Join members of The Great Jones Repertory Company in an open rehearsal/reading as they interpret the first section of the Atalanta myth with music and text.

Experiments Play Reading Series


For the 23rd season of La MaMa Experiments we will focus on theatrical works in progress addressing mental health issues. No one is more familiar with the need to create greater access to mental healthcare than our New York audience, who come face to face with this crisis on a daily basis. After 3 years of a global pandemic, all of us are feeling the upsurge of anxiety and depression, but these trends have been on the rise long before Covid-19. The works this season shed light on important, personal stories and deal with this subject matter in many different and unique ways. From tongue in cheek comedies to absurdist tragedies, Experiments hopes to create a season that will destigmaify, enlighten and, yes, even entertain.
