Additional casting to be announced.

When Sabrina loses her 14-year-old son Tramarion to a police shooting, she is unable to face the ensuing flurry of media attention. Crippled by grief, she retreats into a fantasy world of superheroes and arch-villains that inhabit the comic book created by her son before his death. Assuming the role of The Maasai Angel rather than the expected part of the grieving mother, Sabrina battles her enemies along the way to peace.

This world premiere play helmed by lauded director Robert O’Hara (Barbecue, Bootycandy, Eclipsed) is both heartbreaking and highly inventive. With unbridled imagination, Los Angeles-based playwright Inda Craig-Galván’s Black Super Hero Magic Mama gives us the hero we have been waiting for.

Major support for this world premiere production provided by the Edgerton Foundation New Play Production Fund
