Kareem Jackson, Best friend of Tim

Kareem is a hard working garbage man for the city. He is supportive of his best friend Tim and has tried to help him get a job within the company he works for, but Tim thinks that being a garbage man is beneath him.

"A Family Affair", which is a culmination of our two past plays, "His Double Life", and "Why Does Love Hurt So Bad". Through these plays, the audience will experience all that started with "His Double Life" and what it took for a man to realize that being in love with someone who wants to be married is difficult for him because he's living a double life. Next, with "Why Does Love Hurt So Bad", the audience will endure what could happen in a perceived happy marriage and what can happen with the people who are their friends. "A Family Affair" will allow the audience to see how both of these plays can help families deal with certain issues that are realistic in life and in our society.
