PSU Theatre presents urban fantasy drama

Pittsburg State University Theatre will present Jose Rivera's "Marisol," an apocalyptic urban fantasy about the search for compassion on Earth, at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, March 6-8, at Grubbs Hall Theatre.

The play tells the story of Marisol Perez, a young professional who numbly lives a fearful modern life in the dangerous Bronx neighborhood of her childhood. Marisol is joyful to discover her guardian angel until she angel informs her that she can no longer serve as Marisol's protector because she is leading the Heavenly Hierarchy in a revolution against God.

While the play has a religious backdrop, director Gil Cooper says, 'Marisol' is not about religion. It is a deeply spiritual play, but at its heart it is about people connecting with other people. The play is intended for mature audiences only and has a suggested rating of 'R' for strong language, violence and adult situations.

Tickets are $8 for the general public, $6 for faculty and staff, $5 for those under 17 and over 65, and free for PSU students with a valid ID. Tickets are available at the PSU Ticket Office in the Overman Student Center or at the door 30 minutes prior to curtain. Reservations are encouraged.
