October is here and brings with it an exciting reading of Desi Moreno-Penson's DEVIL LANDthis Wed, October 3rd at 7pm, with musical guests Jennifer Cintron and Micah Burgess. I'm honored to be working with Desi again and to work with The Parsnip Ship on this exciting live podcast recording.
A Latinx couple in the Bronx kidnaps a twelve-year old girl in a misguided attempt at creating a family. The girl claims to be clairvoyant and can communicate with the dead, including the couple’s own dead baby. She is also protected by a not-so-imaginary friend, whom she calls “The Grinch” (Yes, THAT Grinch, only more ghoulish!). Ultimately, a battle of wills ensues pitting faith, family, and politic against each other.The cast includes Raiane Cantisano (ms. estrada), Tanya Perez (Jessica Jones), Sean Carvajal (Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train), Mateo Moreno (Snipped/Cut/Tied), and Anthony Michael Irizarry.
Reading is free and will take place at The Mark O'Donnell Theater at The Actors Fund Arts Center (160 Schermerhorn St, Brooklyn, New York 11201)
