Project Description:


The stage play \"You Betta Ask Somebody\" explores the personal relationships between men and women that put us all at risk for contracting HIV/AIDS. Ex-con Donovan has been released from a two-year stint in prison and is back with his girlfriend, Kendra. To their dismay, Donovan’s “down low” lifestyle while in prison comes back to haunt them both when he is informed that his old cellmate is HIV positive. To make matters worse, Kendra has been having an ongoing affair with a married man, Dan.

The ultimate heartbreak comes when Dan’s pregnant wife, Sheila, finds out that her husband’s cheating ways may have dire consequences. Promiscuity, infidelity, ignorance, misplaced trust and the failure to simply use protection ruin the lives of five people and possibly that of an unborn child. “You Betta Ask Somebody” brings this issue home with an in depth look into typical human behavior. Filled with drama and spoken word poetry, \"You Betta Ask Somebody\" will make you laugh, cry, and think.
