Savior Samuel Now Open

Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre Company

Tickets now available for the next production!

Savior Samuel
By Mark Clayton Southers
Directed by Monteze Freeland
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”!)

THE RANGOS GIANT CINEMA TO HOST FIRST PUBLIC RUN OF STARZL DOCUMENTARY BURDEN OF GENIUS



CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED FILM TELLS THE STORY OF LEGENDARY PITTSBURGHER

Burden of Genius, a documentary chronicling medical pioneer Dr. Thomas Starzl’s journey into organ transplantation, will have its first public theatrical run at Carnegie Science Center’s Rangos Giant Cinema, Fri.–Thurs., April 12–18.

Considered the “father of transplantation,” Starzl performed the world’s first successful liver transplant in 1967, but it wasn’t until he came to the University of Pittsburgh in 1981 that he perfected what was still considered an experimental procedure and helped what was then a Steel City struggling to reinvent itself become "the transplant capital of the world.” He took what was once thought only the subject of science fiction and turned it into an everyday medical miracle, saving the lives of countless patients and transforming modern medicine. 

Burden of Genius has captivated film festival audiences all over the world, winning Best Documentary prizes at the Cleveland International Film Festival and the Raw Science Film Festival in Los Angeles.

The Rangos Giant Cinema is honored to host the first public showings of the film during National Donate Life Month, appropriately in the town Starzl loved so much.

Tickets may be purchased at CarnegieScienceCenter.org.
