Poignant and as relevant today as when award-winning playwright AISHAH RAHMAN wrote it in 1989, “The Mojo and the Sayso” is inspired by events in 1971. In this deeply honest drama, a family contends with the violent death of a young son as they navigate religion, militancy and the fantasy of escape in their individual paths through grief.
