“Daddy’s Boys” will be performed May 12 in the 3,000 seat sanctuary at Reid Temple AME Church, 11400 Glenn Dale Blvd., Glenn Dale, MD. PHEN will provide informational workshops and prostate cancer screening beginning at 5 pm as part of this effort with the play beginning at 7 pm. Over one thousand individuals are pre-registered for the FREE event. Daddy’s Boys is the latest health-oriented presentation by playwright Garrett Davis, who uses humor and music-laden dramas to bring awareness to minority health issues. The PHEN/Davis collaboration builds on Davis’ established portfolio of stage productions that highlight diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease among other issues. “Hosting Daddy’s Boys at Reid Temple is a natural extension of our Men’s Ministry,” said Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington, Senior Pastor. “The play is a vehicle to entertain and educate families about prostate cancer, and further cement our long-standing partnership with PHEN.” PHEN is touring Daddy’s Boys nationally with the support of partners including Astellas, Bayer, Pfizer Oncology and Janssen Oncology.


PHEN works with its network of church partners to host and promote the play within their communities. The performances are free of charge to the public with tickets made available online and through the church partners. The next performance is scheduled for June 9 in Richmond, VA, hosted by Saint Paul’s Baptist Church. “Knowledge is the best defense against prostate cancer and this play is a natural progression of PHEN’s educational outreach efforts,” says Thomas Farrington, Founder and President of the Prostate Health Education Network. “This innovative and proven format will enable us to reach thousands more people and save more lives,” according to Farrington, a 17-year prostate cancer survivor. Tickets are available to the play at: www.prostatehealthed.org and www.daddysboys.net and www.reidtemple.org
