My Father's a Cop
My Fathers A Cop is a true story that traces the tumultuous relationship of Jerry Dean, a charismatic local Greenwich Village legend and his father, a decorated NYPD detective, as their paths criss-cross in the worlds of crime, drug addiction, prisons, and mental hospitals.
Co-written and performed by Jerry Dean, in the tradition of documentary theater, the story uses archival footage and video interviews, to chronicle Jerrys journey from extorting the owner of A&W Root Beer's son for $6,000 at his private upper east side grammar school when he was 12, to robbing 26 whore houses with a sawed-off shotgun when he was 16. In between Jerry and his teenage crew roamed the Village, tagged landmarks with legendary graffiti artists.
As an adult, Jerry bobs and weaves and swerves through downtown NYC clubs, high-end whore houses, Park Avenue brownstones, heroin dens, incarcerations in America's toughest prisons, rehab centers, iconic mental institutions (Bellevue), star friendships, run-ins with gangsters, kinky sex with supermodels, a burgeoning acting career, Hollywood hostage stand-offs, break-ups break-downs, and an undying and tumultuous relationship with his father that would make Shakespeare blush.
Jerry gets his first sparks of hopes in one the darkest places on the planet Sing-Sing Psychiatric Ward, a 30-bed facility for the state's most mentally ill criminals, when a sexy little social worker-angel walks into cell
More than just Jerry's story, My Father a Cop is about our current culture's rapid, manic cycling through the trials fame, power, money, sexual abuse and family trauma.
