by Mary Moody Northen Theatre

Nov. 14 - Nov. 24, 2019


Marisol Perez commutes from her apartment in the Bronx to her successful copy editor job with a Manhattan publisher. But something is amiss: apples are extinct, milk tastes like salt, and the moon has been missing for nine months. Abandoned by her guardian angel, Marisol ventures into the streets to find her best friend. Rivera’s apocalyptic urban fantasy is a cautionary tale, reminding us that rekindling our compassion for our fellow man may be the only way to save the universe. (Winner of the 1993 Obie Award.) Featuring guest artists Tyler Layton and Toby Minor.

 Directed by Liz Fisher.

Content warning: MARISOL contains strong language, stage violence and adult situations. Recommended for mature audiences.
