About The Diagnosis
What would you do if you knew the fate of those around you? Would you speak up? Would you shut down? Athena’s new play delves into a world where one person can see the fate of multiple people running blissfully towards their own destruction. What then, is the responsibility of the person that can see the ending of those who refuse to acknowledge that foresight? Does knowledge of the inevitable mean you have a moral obligation to stop it and if you can’t stop it, how do you avoid being complicit in it?
