ABOUT MARISOL: Brooklyn is a war zone, coffee is extinct, the moon has disappeared, and angels are trading in their wings for machine guns. As a celestial battle against an old and senile God brews in heaven, the rebellion spills into New York City. Without the protection of her guardian angel, Marisol Perez begins a surreal journey through the chaos of a crumbling world to find her way home. Met by vagrants and vagabonds at every turn, she must salvage what hope remains amidst the rubble of the apocalypse. Winner of the 1993 Obie Award, MARISOL is a harrowing and timely dark comedy fantasia that keeps you “laughing right through the misery”- Los Angeles Times.
