SAVIOUR? is the 4th play by Esther Armah. 

SAVIOUR?, features Michael Green and Jimmy Aquino* in a play about  two men engaged in game of high stakes. Billy Hall (Aquino) is a white high profile New York activist who sues his company when a promised promotion as CEO was given to a black woman. He hires Michael Jamal Williams III (Green), an African-American attorney willing to win at any costs and needs the case as a career-changer. Power, passion, family, ambition, love, betrayal, white men, black women, white privilege: it's all on the table in this play that asks: who saves who?

SAVIOUR? featured post show panels:-

ARTS & ACTIVISM: The Sexy of Complexity w/ Pullitzer Prize winner LYNN NOTTAGE

THE BLACK & WHITE OF ACTIVISM w/ Councilman Charles Barron

Modereated by: Esther Armah

WHITE PRIVILEGE, RACE, ACTIVISM IN THE AGE OF OBAMA w/ Dr Cornel West, M Freeman

Moderated by: Dr Marc Lamont Hill

Armah says of SAVIOUR? "In the age of Obama, post racial means as a playwright I get to look at white privilege, white identity - this emotional, complicated thing through this lens as a black woman playwright. It’s a dangerous, provocative world. But I get to look at it, interrogate it, I like that. I'm interested in power and intimacy, in what happens when you strip away the usual walls that keep people at a distance. What will you see? How will you take the truth you really may not want to hear? Theater is safe space to have tough conversations."
