As a part of their Festival of Lies, Brick Theater Inc. presents BIRD OF PRAY, a 60-minute play by Darrel Alejandro Holnes with movement by Jonathan González; directed by Mimi Barcomi on June 9th, 17th, and 27th. BIRD OF PRAY presents an explosive new perspective on Black, gay soldiers in the military and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell from one of the freshest voices in downtown and Brooklyn theater.

Bird of Pray is the first chapter in Holnes’ Sandstorm Cycle, a series of plays based on Holnes’ interviews with African American veterans of recent US wars in the Middle East and elsewhere abroad.

The play is produced by Margaret Champagne and features Cornelius Davidson in the role of Shaquille and DeVante Lewis in the role of Jem.

The play was developed in residency at The Collective NY with the support of the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation and various private donors. Nat DiMario is the production stage manager.
