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

“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.”
