My MFA in Playwriting is coming to close, and with it, a production of my epic Wall, Ball, Summer and Fall (A Coney Island Adventure) is going to be mounted at Hunter College. It’s being directed by the excellent Alex Correia, with the wonderful J. Stephen Brantley- who’s been with the piece since the beginning- playing the part of Moses.
All the details are below- come one, come all!

When Brooklyn teen Jeremy Stevens discovers his dad has lost his job, he runs away as far as he can think to go…to Coney Island. There he meets a giant of a man named Moses Dirko, the master of handball, who speaks like he lives in ancient times but actually lives with his grandmother in a tiny apartment by the sea. Is this man the hero Jeremy has been looking for? Or is there something darker lurking underneath boardwalk, a price to pay for the dream that is handball?
