Manuel Oliver’s “GUAC: My Son, My Hero” tells the story of Manuel and Patricia Oliver’s family in the year following the murder of their son Joaquin “Guac” Oliver in the Parkland shooting. “GUAC” combines elements of testimony theater with standup comedy, video and live painting in an intimate, devastating and loving piece of social justice theater.

Join us for a conversation and excerpts from Manuel’s work along with the team behind this protest piece, Executive Producer, Yael Silver and Political Strategist, Emily Tisch Sussman; moderated by Erika Mallin, Executive Director, Aspen Institute Arts Program.
