Tyler Perry's, "I Know I've Been Changed", toured exclusively from 1998 to 2000.

This hard-hitting play used comedy and drama to tell a story of two adult survivors of child abuse who became the people that their abusive mother said they would be. It is also a story of how they overcame through the power of God with a shocking twist at the end.

Mr. Perry plays the lead character, "Joe", in this show. The Washington Post gave it rave reviews, saying that it cannot be compared to anything of it's genre.

    I have not had the pleasure of seeing "I Know I've Been Changed", but have heard so very much about it. And I too would like to know if it was filmed and is it on DVD to be purchased? Please let us know, how we might view this your first play. Or would you every do it again to be recorded?

    Hello Mr. Tyler Perry, I STILL HAVE THIS BOOK !!!! When you did this play "I Know I've Been Changed" in Shreveport, Louisiana, many, many, years ago. I WAS THERE!!!! I HAVE FOREVER SAID IT WAS, and STILL IS, THE BEST STAGE PLAY I HAVE EVER ATTENDED, I laughed soooo hard until my stomach hurt for three days. I also had moments where I cried. I am going to scan it and upload it to my face book page MrsDonavanNicholasHayes. I SIMPLY LOVE YOUR ANOINTING, YOUR HUMBLE SPIRIT, EVERY WORK YOU HAVE RELEASED!!! I would love to hear from you. I have a special project, I am working on in Lafayette, La. for National Night Out. I am trying to bring awareness in our communities where we need our your children to have hope and stand against violence. I recently learned NNO is recognize in Lafayette, however, the Annual Festivities are done in a location where most of our people have no transportation to attend. We have petition the City Officials to divide and send officials, officers, firefighters etc to this site in hopes of showing the community that we are "United "against drugs and violence. We are awaiting a response from them. There is so much more to this, I would love to share with you. I am not asking for ANY FINANCIAL SUPPORT, however...YOUR PRESENCE, IF POSSIBLE, WOULD BE AN ANSWER TO MY PRAYERS!! If you can find the time, I understand you are rather busy, but no matter what time of day or night. Nevertheless, you are DOING AN AWESOME JOB, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! A TRUE FOLLOWER
