From the pews to centre stage, The Ultimate Sacrifice promises to evoke a resounding Amen!
Xavier, a former gang member recently released from prison, returns to his inner-city neighbourhood to make a difference. With the support of his mentor Pastor Franklin, he sets out on a quest to bring change to the community by taking a stand against his former gang. His attempt to reconcile his past ignites a fire storm of conflict, summons guardian angles and mobilizes an entire community.
This hard-hitting narrative is driven by a stellar cast of young adult actors, a professional Gospel music ensemble and urban dancers. Together they convey complicated issues plaguing inner-city communities while avoiding stereotypes and simple solutions.
Playwright Cheryl Nembhards front line experiences working with gang-involved youth enables her to craft this riveting urban drama with believable characters, high stakes and awe-inspiring allegories. Over the past decade Nembhards plays have received accolades within faith-based communities. The Ultimate Sacrifice is a spirited and timely break through production that promises to captivate wide audiences.
