The Fatherhood Manologues was a great success! 10 men, 10 stories of fathering or being fathered that touched the heart strings and made you think about your dad or your own fatherhood journey. Check out the trailer at: https://www.facebook.com/204080859654876/videos/879593615809887/.
The Fatherhood Manologues is an exhilarating collection of short stories about fatherhood. Each story provides a unique point of view on being a father or being fathered. All the stories will take you on an emotional roller coaster that reminds the audience of the important role fathers play in the lives of their children. The significance of having an involved father or the impact of father absenteeism is felt in each of the personally delivered stories. With the societal stereotypes and social expectations wrapped tightly around the term “fatherhood” the Fatherhood Manologues is a much needed artistic expression of men creating their own narratives. Funny, entertaining, serious and sad, these stories will have you wanting to reconnect and repair broken relationships; as well as, reflect on the bond with your own father. Join us for our next performance of the Fatherhood Manologues and join us on our fatherhood journey.
