Winner of the 1993 Obie Award, Marisol, a poetry-infused apocalyptic play, follows Marisol Perez as she navigates the war torn city that was New York. The angels have left to fight a war in heaven and all of Earth will suffer until the people rise up to join the fight. Rivera’s plea for compassion in a ravaged world, Marisol was described by the Village Voice as “angry, fearsome, fantastic, and poetically frenzied, without surrendering either its sanity or its mordant sense of humour.”
