PRE-DISPOSAL

Genre: Comedy
Written by John Prescod, Directed by Joshua Luria

Pre-Disposal takes place on a hot Bed-Stuy morning; three young men meet all looking for something different. One is looking for someone to confide in, another is looking for a story to tell and the third is looking for an opportunity. Pre-Disposal is a savage comedy about race, terror and the role of art in an unforgiving part of the world.

Cast includes: DK Bowser (“Lipstick Jungle”, Film:Slow Jam King), Deborah Green (Miss White House, Film: Infamous), Paul Pryce (Film: The End Is The Beginning, Romeo & Juliet Theatreworks National Tour) , and Matt Schock (Atlantic Theater Company's "What's That Smell: The Music of Jacob Sterling").
