About The Project:

No Time for the Pain” is not only a fun filled, side splitting, thought provoking piece of theatrical entertainment, it is an educational piece that will aide in the development of the necessary equity building and mainstream societal acceptance of a community often defined by its stereotypes and hyperbole. NTFTP can reach the masses, including the churchgoer, the club hopper, and the layperson through its strong message of relationship, commitment, and unification as it mirrors those challenges everyone faces through the medium of live theatre. With this being the first run of this production, this will be another installment of a dream that is now a vision becoming a reality. It is my praise report that this summation will sustain your interest in “No Time for the Pain” and you will consider this as a unique opportunity to provide the necessary support that will catapult this production into existence.
