Bobby is a small Puerto Rican/Italian kid from Long Island with a big dream. Soon he’s galloping headlong into the strange, obsessive world of professional horse racing. But the track is as dangerous as it is exciting, full of colorful characters and powerful beasts. The jockeys and their associates form a makeshift brotherhood even as they wrestle with the extremes of their sport. But will Bobby outgrow his dream or be consumed by it?
SMALL is a tour-de-force about finding and losing yourself in the messy process of growing up as one young man’s dreams unexpectedly lead him from the Belmont racetrack to the Broadway stage.
SMALL had its world premiere at Penguin Rep Theatre in Stony Point, NY (Joe Brancato, Artistic Director & Andrew M. Horn, Executive Director)
