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.”
