When Sabrina’s fourteen-year-old son dies in a police shooting, it prompts a flurry of media attention and calls for racial justice. Crippled by grief, Sabrina retreats into the fantasy world of superheroes and archvillains that inhabit the comic book created by her son before his death. Assuming the role of Massai Angel rather than the expected part of grieving mother, Sabrina battles her enemies along the way to peace. Both heartbreaking and highly imaginative, this stunning world premiere marks the professional debut of Los Angeles–based playwright (and USC MFA playwriting alumnus) Inda Craig-Galván and signals the arrival of an exciting and distinctive new voice in American theatre.
