An Acorn

By Caridad Svich
Directed by Eliza Palter (COL ’20)
Advised by Professor Maya E. Roth

Propelled by the threat of environmental catastrophe, one traveler leaves home in search of their voice, lost in the rubble of a battered world. This journey takes us through the wreckage of time and history in pursuit of the memory of what Earth once was… Haunting, surprising, and poignant: in the face of irreversible environmental damage, An Acorn uncovers a small kernel of hope. Originally commissioned by the American Blues Theater in Chicago, this highly poetic play by a leading Latinx writer, directed by a double major in TPST and Anthropology, activates creative collaboration for a talented team of student artists at Georgetown. Come imagine change…
