An Acorn
By Caridad Svich
Directed by Eliza Palter (COL '20)  
Advised by Prof. Maya E. Roth
A Senior Thesis Production

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...
