My main man Pat Fenton has done it…Pat is a terrific writer (he’s been an huge inspiration for me while I scribble down my experience growing up on 9th avenue.)

Pat’s an old-school neighborhood guy from 17th street. He wrote StoopDreamer, a play about the lingering effects of gentrification that takes place in Farrell’s Bar & Grill.

In 1945 Robert Moses began a massive roads project (the prospect expressway) that would displace 1,252 families from Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.

Stoopdreamer

This Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 8pm and Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 3pm at Shepherds Hall in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn (245 Prospect Park West / 9th Ave, Brooklyn NY 11215) the Holy Name Fundraising Committee, playwright Pat Fenton, Park Slope Films, director Aimee Todoroff, and Elephant Run District present two Dramatic Readings of StoopDreamers by Pat Fenton in the Brooklyn neighborhood where the play is set.

Pat dreamed of the play being performed in Windsor Terrance.

“I thought it would be a great way to get people together that grew up knowing about Farrell’s Bar, the Windsor Terrance neighborhood and long time owner Eddie Farrell. This became one of the main reasons for these performances, as well as a fundraiser for Holy Name Church, a portion of the process will go to Holy Name.”

The ticket price is $30. Pre- show will have a cash donation bar set up with beer and wine.
