Riveting Spoken Word: A Brooklyn Boy
Born in Brooklyn's Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood to a Grenadian mother and a Guyanese father, Steven Prescod was only one year old when his father was incarcerated. Steven grew up in a house surrounded by a variety of relatives who all had an impact on his life, many of whom are among the 32 characters Steven brilliantly portrays in this one-man show. As an impressionable teenager, despite his efforts to break free from his neighborhood's unyielding grip, Steven was constantly pulled back, ultimately leading to his arrest. While facing a seven-year jail sentence, Steven could have been another statistic or another headline. However, he was given a second chance at life, and his gut-wrenching story is unique, yet universal to all urban youth. A Brooklyn Boy is a riveting hour-long spoken word performance that portrays Steven Prescod's coming-of-age story with a slightly different theatrical edge than a typical one-man show. Enjoy this performance -- full of soul music and dance -- at The Actors Company's Other Space Theater in Los Angeles as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
