Mama' n 'Em (2008)

This gritty, urban melodrama details the life of a 23 year-old African American male,

"K.D.," and his contentious love/hate relationship with the two most important female

figures in his life: "Trina," the mother of his 6 year old child, "Rashan"; and his

mother, "Mama," a proud and determined matriarch. The cast is rounded out by his trio of "partners," Nu Nu, Johnny, and Frankie Boy. K.D. is a conflicted man-child at the epicenter of these characters (Mama 'n' Em) who are all struggling to make him fit

their image of who he is supposed to be.

Dr. Akintunde wrote the story line for the modern take on the classic Robin Hood story.

In his version, characters take matters into their own hands to rid Rob’s hood (neighborhood) of unsavory influences.

Students in the project learn about writing, composing, developing a character, stage production, and other theatre arts. The experience provides opportunities for creative problem-solving and sends a positive message about the importance of education and being morally responsive citizens to both performers and audience.
