28, 7:00pm at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, Michigan.

An explosive new gospel stage play written and directed by Detroit native Betty Riggs, makes the statement that drugs have no respect for race.

Riggs returns to Detroit after spending years in Los Angeles working on the sets of major films including The Fast n Furious franchise and the Scorpion King. With A Mother’s Heart, Riggs brings us the compelling story of a fallen daughter and her mother’s fight to bring her back from the brink of drugs. The core message of her play is faith.
