Mama Are There Any Good Men Left is the fourth stage play by Detroit native Mark Hunter.  The play is a riveting story which chronicles the lives of three men as they navigate through the rough terrain called life.  Abuse, deceit and irresponsibility all play major roles. “As a mentor to young men, it is important to me to help teach them the importance of becoming role models,” says Hunter.  “I want other men to realize that they have the power to positively affect young men and who they grow up to become.” This belief can be seen in "BLUE" who serves as the voice of reason in the story.  Using his years of life experience he tries to ease the transition into manhood as well as serve as the voice of logic.  For some, it will be like looking in the mirror, while others will watch and witness the pain, as they process the realization of absent male role models within the African American community.  This absence has left children confused, with daughters craving the love of their fathers, and young boys trying to develop their own understanding of what a man should be, while mothers fend for themselves struggling to do their best to try and raise boys into men all alone. Hunter continues, “I want men to walk away from this show with a new outlook on life and realize their role as men, and I want women to walk away empowered and inspired by the strong female characters in the show.”  This story is packed with twist and turns that have left audiences in Detroit and Chicago both speechless and even heartbroken at times.  Now this explosive stage play is set to take Dallas by storm and it may just answer the ever so elusive question...ARE THERE ANY GOOD MEN LEFT?
