“Impressively daring, the play escapes into a comic-book universe to better come to grips with an overwhelming — and all too real — American horror.” — LA Times
In all the books that Sabrina Jackson reads her son Tramarion, tragedy’s just an origin story, something to propel the heroes into wondrous new worlds. When tragedy strikes in her own life, Sabrina launches herself into a fantastical, technicolor universe where she gets to be the hero.
A high-flying adventure that refuses to be held down by the gravity at its core, Inda Craig-Galván’s Black Super Hero Magic Mama is a powerful refutation of the disproportionate expectations placed on Black mothers and their sons.
