The seventh annual FRIGID New York festival will premiere Little Pussy, beginning Wed Feb 20th in The Red Room Theatre. John Grady's true tales of being picked on, chased down, and beat up, from his youth to adulthood. Will he ever stand and fight? Are bullies and the bullied destined to find each other? If so, who or what will save him? How will John finally escape the years of torment?
Little Pussy chronicles the life of a man subjected to bullying since grade school. A hero's journey, as we follow John from his first day of Jr. High School in California where he faces his very first bully. To Canada, when he is beat up on the streets of Toronto by a young punk. And finally in New York City, when an encounter with a street thug on Halloween night causes John to finally snap.
