2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: Prospect High: Brooklyn
The 2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival will present Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy's Prospect High: Brooklyn.
Conceived by Daniel Robert Sullivan (Tommy DeVito in Jersey Boys, Author of Places Please!) and co-written by a team of New York City teenagers, the play focuses on four intelligent, highly charged students and one seriously apathetic teacher. Prospect High: Brooklyn was created with the intent of offering a new collection of serious, true-to-life material for teenage actors. The play addresses themes of apathy, revenge, deep friendship, trans acceptance, casual racism, self-harm, and the power of both good and bad advice from teachers, all against the backdrop of an enormous Brooklyn high school. Prospect High: Brooklyn was developed in partnership with Roundabout Theatre and the Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships. Prospect High: Brooklyn received a workshop presentation at Roundabout Theatre Company in April 2014.
Performance will take place in the Main Stage.
