FYFMFN is a play with in a play that demonstrates the process of being an artist where solace, healing and growth can be found.

We wrote FYFMFN as a reflection of our lives and almost any human being who has set out to achieve something. Having concentrated on topics such as perseverance and strength, it’s comparable to a day in the life anyone wanting to prosper in a world where setback and frustration are inevitable.
