A woman discussed the pressures of motherhood and disease while maintaining a job and needing to press forward. A man talked about his need to be inspired but the woman he married could not inspire him. At one session we broke down the stigma of the "He-Man" persona and the effects, both good and bad, that it has had on the men in the room. In another, we discussed the rules of engagement for marriage and for relationships in general. These rooms become safe places for men and women as we pick apart the idea of ambition and the cost of chasing your dreams and goals.
After touring this one man show that deals with the strain on relationships and pain the comes with being ambitious, Bobby Drake breaks down the monologues and poems into a series to facilitate a conversation with strangers in barber shops, beauty shops and bars to gain insight to the modern American Dream.
