Rock WILK - Creator, Playwright and performer

Rock WILK, award winning performance artist, writer, composer and musician- 
Rock's first play, BROKE WIDE OPEN, was born as an independently released album in 2007, before being developed into a theatrical work, was workshopped at PS 122 in NYC as part of the Undergroundzero Festival, had 10 performances at The Camden Fringe Festival in London, England, a sold out performance at The United Solo Theatre Festival back in New York City, and was presented as a main stage production at The Passage Theatre in Trenton, NJ.
In November of 2012, BROKE WIDE OPEN enjoyed a highly acclaimed, Off Broadway run at The New Theatre at 45th Street, for almost four months. 
In 2014, Rock appeared in his first feature film, Jamesy Boy, which stars James Woods, Mary Louise Parker and Ving Rhames.

A recipient of the 2016 BRIO award for acting, awarded by the Bronx Council on the Arts, Rock has, for the past five years, been immersed in his second play, Brooklyn Quartet, which is directed by reg e gaines (Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk). After over three years of development; doing staged readings and performances throughout the country, including being a finalist as part of The Downtown Urban Theatre Festival in NYC, and also including a 10 performance workshop run at The Medicine Show Theatre in 2015, (also in Manhattan), Brooklyn Quartet had its official New York debut at Pregones Theatre, in The Bronx, in June of 2016. 

Rock is currently looking forward to sharing his just completed four part mini-series of Brooklyn Quartet, in addition to looking forward to releasing a new book of poetry and all kinds of other forms of storytelling, which is really awesome, and then there is even more excitement, in addition to everything just mentioned, about beginning a new journey with a new play about his recent discovery of his biological mother's family, after spitting into a little tube, via Ancestry DNA. How crazy is that? That's some real life, and so, of course, it's time to write a new story, and yes, this is me writing this, in third person, which is really annoying, and kind of pretentious, but I'm just gonna leave it anyway, since I admitted it, and I'm sure you'll all understand, and I look forward to more and more, and thanks for reading all of this, and have a beautiful day, and here's to a better world, for all of us.
