Why See Black Super Hero Magic Mama?
The World Premiere Of Inda Craig-Galvan's Powerful New Drama
Inda Craig-Galvan's poignant drama Black Super Hero Magic Mama enjoys a world premiere at LA's Geffen Playhouse as part of its groundbreaking new 2018/19 season. Winner of the 2016 Trustus Playwrights's Festival as well as part of the lineup of the prestigious Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference in 2017, the heavy hitter examines an African American mother's struggle to come to terms with the death of her son at the hands of a white policeman.
Highlighting a different side to the Black Lives Matter movement, the story centers on Sabrina Jackson, a mother whose son Tremarion, a talented young artist, has recently died in a racially-sensitive shooting. His death sparks a flurry of media attention and community outrage, but rather than taking to the streets to protest, Sabrina retreats into a dream world where she becomes an invincible comic book hero based on Tremarion's own creation. As she shores up her grief within these surreal walls, Sabrina must decide wether to stay in a dreamland where her son never dies or face the real world and the unsurmountable waves of grief and loss.
Opening night: 5 March 2019
