Next From Pittsburgh Playwrights

Savior Samuel

By Mark Clayton Southers
Directed by Monteze Freeland
Dramaturgy by Dr. Kyle Bostian
February 8th through March 16th 2019
At the Trust Arts Education Center, 805 Liberty Avenue

In Savior Samuel, an African-American family is trying to survive in the Midwest circa 1877 when an unexplained event changes their lives as well as those who interact with them.

Savior Samuel is the second of Mark Clayton Southers’ 19th Century series of plays exploring lives and themes of African-American life in the 19th century, following 2014’s smash hit Miss Julie, Clarissa and John. (One critic called that show “a celebration of the enormous and unique power of drama and how a brilliant playwright writing at the top of his game can levitate an audience”!)

As our theatre space undergoes renovation throughout 2019, this production will be presented in the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Arts Education Center, just down the street from our theatre. An elevator is available, and the space is fully accessible.
