Marisol Perez, a young Latina woman, is a copy editor for a Manhattan publisher. She is informed by her guardian angel that she can no longer protect her because she has been called to join the revolution against an old and senile God who is dying and “taking the rest of the universe with him.” The war in heaven spills over into New York City, reducing it to a smoldering urban wasteland. Giant fires darken the skies, the moon has not been seen in months, the food has been turned to salt. Alone, without her protector, Marisol begins a nightmare journey into this new war zone.

Rivera’s absurdist play is an apocalyptic urban fantasy that highlights a need for responsibility and compassion towards each other–a need as relevant to the world now as it was 30 years ago.

Making their full directorial debut at Rooke Theatre is FMT’s own Liz Almonte ’24.
