I have been thinking for a while about all those times I've screwed up as a mum, handled situation in a way I've completely regretted, had moments of thinking 'I'm not meant to be doing this', and even 'why the **** won't my kids be good'!
So I thought it's about time to get these stories and other like minded mums written down and into a play. To share the highs and numerous lows of being a mum, foster mum, a mum of twins, of 6 kids or more! As each and everyone one of us have a tale to tell.
So I'm seeking stories from mums all around the world , send me you're funny, embarrassing, life changing, sad, honest ,rib-tickling stories to email@example.com so I can share YOU'RE stories, that mums we are not alone!!!
I aim for this show to give mums a well deserved night off from the crying, whinging, dinner making, cleaning, for a night of giggles and bubbles with you fellow mums! Look forward to reading you're stories!
Please share this page so I can get as many stories as possible. x #shareyourstory#mumsbeingmums#newplay#playsforadults#southhams#honestmums#sharingyourstories

1. NBT: What has it meant to participate in the development of Manhood?
Stephen: In a business where you can be overlooked 99% of the time it is great to be pulled into any creative process. Manhood is special because i'm surrounded by people that I have worked with over the years and we are growing together. Dennis and I went to undergrad together at Hampton University and I don't believe either of us knew we would be and actor or playwright. Over a decade later we are having fun doing what we love. I'm honored to work with NBT and all involved in taking on Manhood from start to finish.
2. NBT: What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of "Manhood"? Stephen: Responsibility. Being a provider. Being a protector. Family. Strength. A happy home.
3. NBT: What character do you play in "Manhood"? Do you have any personal connections to this character?
Stephen: I play Silence Manning. Like Silence, I too want to have a child, start a family, and get paid well to doing what I love. I often grapple with the idea of my manhood being tied to my income level and I find it very interesting that Silence has that aspect of his life in check. Mo' Money, Mo' Problems right? Is the problem the money or is it just us. I'm excited to explore the need for family from Silence's side of the coin.
4. NBT: What does Black Joy mean to you?
Stephen: Black Joy is when I no longer have to add Black to Joy...Joy should be like air, it's for everyone..... Cont. reading this interview on our Facebook page
