*Special Red Night Benefit Performance Saturday, February 11, 2017*

directed by Lynch R. Travis

With an important piece of legislation pending, treatment for a serious illness about to begin, and engagement to a woman half his age in the balance, a first-term City Councilman in Washington, D.C. is visited by his two adult sons, the younger one a gay man who must find a way to come out to his father, the older one an ex-football star who has been living out of the country and out of touch for nearly twenty years.

Both sons, in addition, carry a long-held secret agreement that is destined to explode in their father's face.

The author, Kermit Frazier, has had nearly twenty plays produced in New York and around the country at such theatres as the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, Baltimore Center Stage, Williamstown Theatre Festival, the Philadelphia Drama Guild, and Woodie King Jr.’s New Federal Theatre. The Rep production of Firepower is a World Premiere.
