‘GUAC: My Son, My Hero’

“I lost my son. My son did not lose his father.” Those are the words of Manuel Oliver about his son Joaquin who was killed in the Parkland, Florida school shooting. This social justice theater piece tells the story of Manuel and Patricia Oliver in the year after their son’s murder. They have been campaigning for gun law reform through their organization, Change the Ref. “GUAC” combines stand-up comedy, testimony theater, video, installation art and live painting “to create an intimate, hilarious, devastating and loving picture of a 17-year-old boy named Joaquin, who immigrated with his family from Venezuela to the United States, for a safer life.”
