Good Guys. The Stage Play
Sunday June 18, 2023 08:00 PM EDT
From the venue:godguys. The Stage Play is about 6 African American men, (5 godbrothers and a godfather), who have formed a family-like bond over the years and still routinely meet to catch up on life. Led by “Pops”, who mentored the other men when they were teenagers at a community center, the men usually gather to cook, sing, and share a unique brotherhood. Despite difficult pasts, each man is successful in his own right… lawyer, therapist, music producer, CEO, and a plastic surgeon. But when they enter this safe space as “godguys”, sometimes, the pain of the little boys resurfaces. Their conversations reveal deep wounds that deal with such topics as abuse, mental health issues, abandonment, and addiction, topics not often talked about openly in the African American community, especially among men. The purpose of the play is to share experiences of African American males that stimulate dialogue and encourage healing.
