Molière in the Park, in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance, will present a live stream of Christina Anderson’s Pen/Man/Ship.

1896. The Separate But Equal Doctrine has just been upheld in the Supreme Court of the United States as a Black American surveyor boards a ship to lead a mysterious expedition bound for Liberia. In tow are his troubled son, a rebellious young woman, and a skeptical crew. On the open sea an unexpected detour forces secrets out of hiding fundamentally changing the course of the journey and their lives. Christina Anderson creates a telling parable about violence, betrayal, faith, and freedom in this moving maritime epic.

The cast features Lucille Lortel Award winner Crystal Lucas-Perry, Kevin Mambo (“Marvel’s Luke Cage” on Netflix), Jared McNeill (HBO’s “We Are Who We Are,” Battlefield at BAM) and Postell Pringle (The Urban Retreat at the Public Theater).

Pen/Man/Ship streams live on Saturday, December 12 at 2pm EST and 7pm EST. A recording of the live stream will be available on MIP’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/moliereinthepark) until Monday, January 4. Viewing is free.
