Prospect High: Brooklyn
Trinity Academy for the Performing Arts
Written by Daniel Robert Sullivan and the 46th St. Collective
Directed by Daniel Lee White
Prospect High: Brooklyn is a 90-minute play based on the real experiences and conversations of a group of New York City teenagers. The play may be presented traditionally with five characters, or as an ensemble piece with 12, 18, or more characters.
Created by Daniel Robert Sullivan and the 46th St. Collective, the play takes place in multiple rooms throughout an enormous city high school. We begin at 2:47 PM and run in real-time, meeting (at least) four highly-charged students and (at least) one comically apathetic teacher. Addressing themes of gun violence, trans identity, deep friendships, self-harm, and casual racism, we see life-changing actions that culminate in one disturbing act. Is there a way violence could have been prevented?
