In this week's episode, Nancy sits down with playwright, A.R. Garcia to discuss his new play, She Hates Coffee. The production is a romantic comedy that explores our deepest feelings, the complexity of friendship, relationships and decisions from a male perspective.
From a young age men are taught that certain aspects of their personality are not acceptable, they are taught not to cry or express in words, how they are feeling. Because of the way boys are socialized, their ability to deal with emotions has been systematically undermined. Men are taught, point-by-point, not to feel, not to cry, and not to find words to express themselves.
In this interview Nancy and A.R. discuss his work, why he is passionate about telling stories that center on love and relationships from a male perspective, and how men can shift the ways they have historically viewed and expressed themselves within relationships.
