"When I drop my wings, all hell's going to break loose and soon you're not going to recognize the world – so get yourself some power Marisol, whatever you do."

The angels are leading a revolution against God in this magical realist play. Marisol, the eponymous hero, searches for home in an apocalyptic New York where people must fight for survival, coffee is extinct, and debtors are tortured.

The Year of Silence

a devised theatre piece based on a short story of the same name by Kevin Brockmeier
Developed by Thesis Candidate Leah Artenian

Blackbox Theatre, Performing Arts Building

“The truth was that we enjoyed the silence, and more than that, we hungered for it” - Kevin Brockmeier, The Year of Silence


When a city begins experiencing inexplicable moments of pure silence, many of its citizens’ lives are changed forever. Before long they enact a “Silence Movement” to abolish all unnecessary sound in the city as they seek to recapture the serenity they found in the moments of natural silence. This play explores the repercussions of constantly striving for what we don't have rather than appreciating what is in front of us, and the problems that arise when a city attempts to impose Utopian ideals onto its people.
