An apocalyptic world comes alive in the 1993 Obie Award-winning “Marisol” by José Rivera. “‘Marisol’ tells a different kind of coming of age story. Our eponymous heroine finds herself living in an angelic war zone in an end-days New York City, as she embarks on a quest to determine what, if anything, is worth fighting for,” says director Sharon Graci. “We have a front row seat as she embraces her hero’s journey, choosing not just to endure her life, but to live it gloriously and fully.”
The College of Charleston Department of Theatre and Dance will present “Marisol” as a part of the department’s 2018-19 “year of social justice.” The urban fantasy encompasses themes of homelessness and environmental destruction as it begs society to wake up and restore compassion in order to save the world.
The College welcomes PURE Theatre Artistic Director and Founder, Sharon Graci, as the director of “Marisol.“ Graci says, “I am thrilled to be directing ‘Marisol’ and to be working again with the students and faculty in the College of Charleston’s Department of Theatre and Dance. ‘Marisol’ is José Rivera’s much lauded tale of an epic, fantastic journey to the self.”
