What happens when Truth, Rage and Purpose converge upon a metaphorical moon?
A displaced narrator must face her past and find out.
Led by a tiny spider, Rise is a darkly comedic, existential (at times explosive) solo play - told through 20 characters - using flashback, magical realism and satire to explore artistic risks and rewards, the power of Denial, roots of addiction and rising to one’s purpose in spite of it all.
Written in rhyme, this ground-breaking new work by Diana Varco (Shattered) brings voice to transforming heartbreak into hope and finding the courage to honor our worth.
Rise will premiere at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe (August 2023) with preview performances at Reykjavík Fringe Festival (June 2023).
