SHOOT THE FREAK

Genre: Drama
©Lisha Brown
By Jaclyn Backhaus, Directed by Andrew Neisler

When Franny and her Bushwick friends set out to Coney Island to relive the magic birthday exploits of 2006, they expect a few Nathan’s hot dogs, a few spins on the Cyclone, a few nostalgic look backs on How Things Used to Be. Franny even crosses her fingers for a whimsical make-out session with Grant. But no one—not even the maniacal local weatherman—seems to forecast the Level Five Hurricane headed straight for Luna Park. As the boards on the walk start to creak and split in the wind, as hunks of amusement park metal are exposed to the elements, as the rain falls and the waves crest, the layers of old Coney (and Old Coney, and Ole Olde Coney) bubble to the surface. And it’s only a matter of time before the Freaks seek shelter from the storm.
