The Fifth Sun (large-cast ensemble manuscript)
By Nicholas A. Patricca.

Cast: 6-14 actors. Large-Cast Version. There are five suns in the Mayan cosmos … four of them represent cultivation, rain, life and death. The fifth sun is a human being whose destiny is to save his people. On March 24, 1980, during Mass, Oscar Romero, 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 experimental 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. This large cast version is appropriate for ensemble groups interested in more ritual music, dance and presentational style. Area staging.
