You are about to hear the second play in the Renuion Revolucion Radio festival: Masterclass from a Broken Angel or Drowning Fish, by Georgina Escobar.
It is day 182 of “The Great American Cloistering” of 2020. Esther has found a new passion for day drinking and turning her closets into living rooms. Mud is recently obsessed with baking and with having babies.
When Esther receives a new version of the “Echo Dot” from her husband Mud, she soon realizes there might be something amuck with the technology—or has she just been drinking too much?
A ridiculous religious satire that reimagines the Annunciation and questions the role of women and motherhood, Masterclass from a Broken Angel (or Drowning Fish) is a story about a young married couple grappling with the reality of their own relationship during uncertain times.
