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. 

Directed by dianne k webb
with Renee Van Nifterik, Brandon Morgan, Kendrick Lattimore & Caleb Fields
Andraes Hunt, narrator

The reading includes a post-show talk-back with the director and cast.
