The Black Man-O-logues II…

Hello World!

Guess what? I have conquered the height of Mt. Everest, kayaked the length of the Amazon River and backpacked across the tundra of Antarctica all in my quest to demystify the enigma that is the black man in love…

Guess what else? I’m lying as you have probably figured out by now…But you must admit that sometimes understanding the black man in love seems as challenging as exploring some of the world’s most daunting sites…

But Jacquay Waller, an Atlanta-based playwright and director, promises to decode the black man in love, in the Black-Man-O-Logues II, “a true expose of black men’s perspective on love.”  This play will be featured at the 14th Street Playhouse, 173 14th Street, Atlanta, GA  30309 on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $30.

This honest and in-your- face production pulls you into an intimate conversation about love with nine black men; each confronting a unique set of life circumstances, according to Waller.

“People who relate to the various emotions and thoughts surrounding love will appreciate the openness of these characters as they expose their true to life perspectives of this universal theme,” Waller said.

This production is the second installment of the “Black Man-O-logues,” which has been described as “controversial, edgy, and raw with its reference to the ‘n’ word, male-spousal abuse, infidelity and more.”

 “The more controversial, the better,” Waller said. “I’m only interested in writing material that will help promote progressive dialogue and engage audiences from a state of apathy to a state of involvement for the betterment of our society.”

Check back on my blog on Wednesday for my interview with Waller about how and why he wrote the “Black Man-O-logues II,” which is presented DreamCatcher Productions.

Any thoughts?
