The Amazing Adventures of a Woman in Need

"The Amazing Adventures of A Woman In Need" is the first piece written jointly by Naima Mora and Marishka S Phillips. The play celebrates four female archetypes that beg of the audience a sense of solidarity by exploring their lives as quintessential New Yorkers. This one woman show is moving, a tear jerker with many moments that will have you erupting with laughter. Naima is seated as the narrator, opening the play for three characters which we see are parts of her own inner dialogue. Penelope, the supermodel who never dies; Joanne, the self proclaimed stay at home dog mom; and Marisol Yanette Arnelis Rodriguez Lopes, the serial dater seeking modern day reparations. This play will take you on a beautifully moving journey that explores the human heart and what it means to live in solidarity as a New Yorker. 

Naima Mora and Marishka S Phillips began working together on this play in 2019. A large part of this work focuses on the aspect of isolation and loneliness experienced in large metropolis cities, like New York. Most of their writing process was done during the pandemic of 2020 where most of the world was experiencing this human state. The play responds to this by showing how four different female characters deal with loneliness and isolation amidst real life problems such as abandonment, victimization, mental illness and exploitation. Naima and Marishka do an excellent job of touching on the human condition, bringing these characters to life ... all of whom are very familiar to the audience.
