In 1955, as the Dodgers and the Yankees battle it out on the field, a blue-collar Brooklyn family battles for its own survival.
The father, a former minor league player, wants his sons to go to college. One of his sons has been invited to a Dodgers training camp, while the other will never be able to play ball.
A doting aunt has her own amorous desires, as the mother tries to hold this scrappy family together.
A funny, gritty and poignant tale of complex lives, Leaving Brooklyn was part of the Queens Theatre's New American Voices Reading Series in 2016.
