From a distance, our neighbor’s life may seem glamorous. They may have better clothes, live in a better house, and be better looking.  But pierce the delicate egg shell exterior and you will discover the turbulent forces in their lives.

The Life Monologues was a portal into the lives of the most complicated dynamic, that between a man and a woman. For a little over an hour and a half, tale after tale in vignette form delve into heart ache, tragedy, and life’s disappointments.  You discover that it’s tough to be a black woman and even worse to be a black man.

The ebb and flow of that night’s performances was a round robin of sharing, feeling, and exposing the raw nerve of pain, lust, and man’s frailties.

In the end, tough times never last, but tough people do and The Life’s Monologues will give you a realization that “heck, my life is not so bad after all.”
