Theatre LILA ask​s​:​ what artistic action ​can we take to be a part of the important conversations surrounding the new civil rights movement inspired by the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, John Crawford​ and now Madison’s own Tony Robinson​?​ We ​found our answer in The Mojo and The Sayso, Aishah Rahman’s lyrical and realist drama about one family dealing with such a loss. ​The play tells the story of how one​ African​-​American family’s strength and faith are tested as they search for a talisman powerful enough to save them after the senseless death of their young son. With compassion, humor, and a unique sense of language, Aishah Rahman guides you on a journey where the distinctions between comedy, fantasy, and tragedy disappear.
