Gun & Powder
Gun & Powder is a new musical inspired by the true story of Mary and Martha Clarke—African American twins—who pass for White to help settle their mother’s sharecropper debt and seize the funds by any means necessary. However, their bond of sisterhood is tested when they fall in love with two very different men.
