I WANNA MAN!!!…

FROM A BLACK WOMAN’S HEART
performed at a community school in Dallas circa 1980/83

(found this one and only photo…first one woman play I ever wrote, produced, and performed, I only remember the opening monologue called I WANNA MAN)
i wanna man
who watches me
when he doesn’t think
that I know that he is watching me
i wanna man
who
cooks me lumpy oatmeal
and burnt toast
when I’m sick and
on my birthday
i wanna man who
doesn’t mind
running me
a hot bath
occasionally
i wanna man
who changes the light bulb
empties the trash
and
mows the lawn
without me
even telling him to
what will he get in return
me
exclusively
a blast from the past
