"Unable to live up to his father’s expectations, Coffee, a preacher’s kid from Alabama, finds sanctuary in the world of spoken word," according to press notes. "Beat poetry is his religion, but the true meaning of love is found in A Taste of Chocolate. Sweeter words were never spoken."
“Timothy Ware is a new theatrical voice at a powerful juncture, where spoken word confronts faith, family and the very meanings of identity,” said Donna Trinkoff, Amas artistic producer, in an earlier statement. ”A Taste of Chocolate challenges an entire community to sample an alternative perspective.”
