Profound, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you care about black men and boys, their flourishing, their good mental and emotional health, want to hear men speak their hearts.

Don't see it if you don't want to be challenged. Or you find discussions of mental health struggle and (at the end suicidal thoughts) painful. Read more

Thought-provoking, Great writing, Clever, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you want to be reminded of the absolute power of theatre. You feel the depth of every emotion through the stories of six black men.

Don't see it if you want an easy or traditional play. You don't care about the lives of others.
