A Staged Reading of Marisol by José Rivera: Part of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Lend Us Your Ears Reading Series – November 4, 2019

Written by the acclaimed Puerto Rican playwright José Rivera, Marisol is the darkly imagined tale of Marisol Perez, a twenty-six-year-old Latina woman living in the Bronx. Marisol leads an unremarkable life as an editor for scientific textbooks. Her routine existence is disrupted by her guardian angel who informs her that the angels are planning a rebellion against God. As the heavenly conflict unfolds, Rivera crafts an unsparing and poetic look at the issues of homelessness, mental illness, ecological disaster, and civil disorder. Filled with imaginative characters, startling encounters and a storyline that is as whimsical as it is dire, Marisol is equal parts humor and heartbreak.
