it's a very different play. Dark but thought-provoking. Glad that I gave it a try. Hope everyone will enjoy it as much as I did

Description

In José Rivera’s Obie Award-winning play, Marisol finds herself in an urban wasteland where coffee, apples and the color blue are extinct and the moon has gone missing. While her guardian angel leads an army against God, Marisol struggles to survive in the chaos that surrounds her. A fantastical vision of the future staged in a labyrinth within the Wimberly Theatre. Director and BU alumna Tara L. Matkosky reverses the playing space and seats patrons on stage in what promises to be a unique theatrical experience.
