A Brooklyn Boy is a riveting spoken word performance that portrays Steven’s coming of age story. His father was incarcerated when he was just one year old. And, as A Brooklyn Boy teenager Steven himself faced seven years in jail, but then got a second chance in life. His one-man show is directed by Moises Roberto Belizario.


This event is part of ‘Give Something Back,’ an initiative launched by BAFTA President HRH the Duke of Cambridge to help young people who wish to enter the film and television industries. The Duke was very impressed when he saw Steven in A Brooklyn Boy when he and the Duchess of Cambridge visited New York recently and is warmly supporting him on his road to success in the world of entertainment. After the positive media attention from the Duke's visit, Steven performed segments from A Brooklyn Boy on many tv shows including The Today Show and The Meredith Vieira Show.


The showcase will be followed by a Q and A with Steven Prescod and Moises Roberto Belizario moderated by Timberly Whitfield.

“When ever I perform this work I only wish that I reach that young person that may be drifting down that path, and that I inspire them to chose themselves over the streets” - Steven Prescod
