Equal Chances


I have directed at least 3 plays for Is Said. He’s a dynamic writer and I enjoyed putting his words in motion on stage. His plays that I have directed have included poetry, dance and music which make them very unique in their delivery to the audiences. Is Said has written about very important topics of today including all ages and facets of life. From homelessness, drug abuse, spirituality has been some items his plays have introduced to the community in a very unique way. It was been a pleasure and privilege to put his words and work on stage.

“Equal Chances in a wonderful collection of plays written by Is Said. This book paints a vivid portrait of us all through the authors captivating voice. The combination of words and movement engage and empower us to see ourselves and our world in a different light”
Tress Augustine - Actress/ Poet

Brother Is Said plays reflect the social construct of the “ABUSA people” (Africans Born in the United States of America). “God made us Black” and “Our world is a New World” his poetry and plays are a part of our History now etched in the Spirit of Time. Thanks you my Brother for your gifts and we will keep the Spirit of the ABUSA people alive.

“Is Said has brought many wonderful experiences with his many talents, I’m glad to have been able to be there and live it firsthand. Is Said has dynamic plays and poetry, and brings storytelling to life. I know this because I am his youngest daughter, living and experiencing life through his eyes. A trip I will never forget.

“Equal Chances” is a collection of truths carved out of the everyday experiences of Is Said. It’s a reality that’s personal and purposeful at the same time. His ‘life stories’ depict the hopes, dreams, love, pain and passion of everyday people. He speaks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And truth has no ending.
Sandee Hemphill-Author

Is Said,s play, “Equal Chances”, work is a force to be reckoned with! Life choices brought to the forefront that make you think & consider your final destination. “Olds Folks own”, an homage to the elderly, their rich wisdom, knowledge and insight enlightens audiences to never underestimate the power of being a great giver.
Cynthia P. Carr-Director

I feel that a GOOD book should be able to whisk you away to another world, as well as make you feel that you’re part of that world. That is what Bro. Is Said’s books do. You find yourself talking out loud to the characters. His plays draw you in, and make you feel that you’re in their world!
