Banal, Ambitious, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if if you want to see a show about domestic abuse.

Don't see it if to long, bad acting, directing and story. If you want to kill time and don't care what the story is about or don't care.

Excruciating, Unsympathetic, Long-winded, Unsalvageable

See it if you don't actually expect a thoughtful treatment of domestic abuse and don’t have any reason to avoid really poorly done community theater

Don't see it if It's played for the same laughs as a Tyler Perry movie (hectoring, enraged woman going after stuttering man w/ frying pan), but less sharp Read more

Verbose, Uneven acting, Interesting theme, Needs editing, Amateurish

See it if you like plays with energy and are about relationships, male self image and the rarely dealt with theme of male abuse.

Don't see it if you require a highly professional production and are averse to a drawn out repetitive script that needs "tightening."

Excruciating to sit through, Avoid it!, Disappointing, Bewildering, Cringe-worthy

See it if you feel that any African-American cast gets too little stage work & deserves to be seen and supported, no matter how bad the play is.

Don't see it if you could spend 2 hrs & 40 mins more enjoyably by rearranging your sock drawer or alphabetizing your books. [See comments!] Read more

“An ironic ten-character tale of an abused womanizer named Darren...A smooth wordsmith played by Harris, who was very entertaining and believable...Laughter filled the theatre. The laughter was needed, as the somber reality of maternal abuse and the impact it has had on young men does need more attention and understanding. Bravo to the immensely talented cast and crew and to Fulton for bringing to the forefront an awakening to a topic often hidden behind scars.”
