September of 2006 during prayer, Carrie heard the Lord speak to her about writing a play. Having never
written a play other than when in high school, she asked the Lord what she should call the play. Carrie
was reminded of her conversation with her friend and co-worker. As a result, “I Don’t Want No Corny
Man” was written.
The play originally highlighted Carrie’s freedom from an unhealthy marriage, but as she continued to seek
God for the direction of the play, God impressed on her to look at individuals, male and female, that she
knew who were in unhealthy relationships because of not wanting to be alone. As well as look at how two
individuals can date and still remain pure before Him! In order to write a realistic script Carrie
interviewed men and women that were in an unhealthy relationship, men and woman waiting for God to
bless them with a mate, and men and women that were dating and the struggle that they had in regard to
not having sex before marriage.
In conclusion, the message (s) to the play is that God can and will deliver you from an unhealthy
relationship, He is aware of your (male or female) struggle with being lonely and He will give you the
strength to overcome and endure ANY circumstance. You, female or male, do not have to lower or
compromise your standards, just to sooth someone.

I just got a call from the Mayors assistant. She told me she had gone to a play about a month ago. This play had Billy D. Williams in it. She paid at least twice the amount, but enjoyed our play much more. She said Nichol was so good she thought it was a recording of her voice, then she notice all the music and singing was live. It blew her away. Wall did an AWSOME Job! Let\'s do this again, Hosea.
As you know I called you on Saturday the 8th. I was so impressed by the quality of the writing, singing and acting of a certain crazy lady (Cee-Cee). You were like a flower that bloomed before my eyes. Keep on doing what you are doing!
Best wishes, Sherry Tufts
