On March 24, 1980, while saying Mass, Oscar Romero, the Archbishop of San Salvador, was assassinated. This powerful and acclaimed play presents the story of the people and the forces that transformed an ordinary man into a courageous leader. It is an absorbing play that combines elements of ancient tomb rituals, Mayan temple dramas and medieval morality plays into a contemporary dramatic structure in which we see a human being ultimately embody the moral voice and vision of his people. The Fifth Sun features a haunting musical score by The San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble and Xavier Quijas Yxayotl.
