Alex Andre's PRATFALL to Have World Premiere At Brooklyn Film Festival

The Parsnip Ship (Artistic Director/Host, Iyvon E.) announces a free in-person podcast recording of Cockfight by Peter Gil-Sheridan. The event will be held Monday, March 27, 2023 at The Mark O'Donnell Theater in Downtown Brooklyn (160 Schermerhorn St.) at 7:30pm.

Directed by Anna Brenner Hinh, the play will feature cast members Annie Henk, David Anzuelo, Alex Hernandez, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Andrea Negrete , and Kelley Rae O'Donnell.

Juanie is a painter. His canvas: a giant egg, big enough to hold a full grown adult man. Inside that egg is Juanie's father's dream: a prizewinning rooster that he hopes will become a star on the cockfighting circuit. When the egg hatches, the bird's nature collides with Big Juan's vision for him. He embarks on a campaign to toughen the bird, to turn the bird into a warrior. When Juanie learns that most roosters that fight in cockfights die, Juanie searches for ways to save his family and his bird from total oblivion.

Peter Gil Sheridan's work has been developed and/or produced by Keen Company, Page 73 Productions, Soho Rep's Writer/Director Lab, The New Harmony Project, PlayPenn, InterAct Theatre, The Guthrie, The Cherry Lane Mentor Project, Borderlands, Sundance, Ars Nova, The Millay Colony, Ucross Foundation, and The Playwrights Center (Jerome Fellowship.)
