Not in Front of the Children

Written and performed by GARY POWERS

Directed by JAMES OWENS

Revolution Stage Company production of Not in Front of the Children. Children are sitting around a table in a black and white photograph from the 1950's

Danny shares what it's like to grow up 'different,' learning to 'play the game,' and surviving in a world that feels far from safe. After quitting a job, and suffering a mental breakdown, Danny's ready to be honest with his sister about who he truly is. But he is quickly warned not to talk about it in front of her children.


His sister's rejection sends Danny reeling back to therapy where he rediscovers the wounded 'little kid' inside him. As Danny maneuvers through a world without a guidebook, he meets some interesting characters along the way to self-acceptance. This heartwarming, one-person musical, features eight original songs. After numerous successful readings, NOT IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN now receives its world premiere on the RSC Stage!
