Friendship Matters

by Rona D.

“Friendship Matters” is an award-winning poignant,

light-hearted yet dramatic romantic comedy about three women whose bond is

tight and characteristics are so relatable, you’ll view them as your

friends.  Despite their ups and downs, these women find a way to love, laugh

and uplift one another, thus showing us why Friendship Matters.

The story is authentic, relationships endearing, and twists are

hilariously shocking, so much so that by the end of the story you’ll be rooting

for each one of them and wanting more.

Meet the Characters


“The Sassy One”

Saisha (pronounced “say-sha”) is a real estate agent with a gift for cooking who still holds a place for her first love, Lamont. Possibly too open to finding a suitable replacement. She overcompensates for insecurities with an in-your-face confidence that turns heads, but is ultimately unsure of herself when the important decisions need to be made.


“The Conservative One”

Euniqé (pronounced “unique”) is a psychotherapist and the most complex of the trio, raising a son alone after the death of her beloved husband. She’s strong, she’s the backbone of this friendship, but she is still a woman with needs. Although romance isn’t on her radar, love still tries to find its way to her heart.


“The Dutiful One”

Kandace dreamed of being an interior designer, but she’s more of a shopaholic who is struggling between an unhappy marriage and the luxuries that it conveys. She seems meek at first glance, but underneath all the designer clothes and expensive purses is a tiger who just might be uncaged.

Looking for something special for Mother’s Day!
