AN AMERICAN DRUM CIRCLE

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Written by Vanessa Shealy, Directed by Melissa Attebery

An American Drum Circle is a turn-of-the-millennium comic-drama in which an innocent American girl hopes to escape the failures of her pious father by taking refuge in an intense relationship with a young Nigerian émigré. But he has family skeletons of his own. Together, their family roots entangle them in a web of fraud and falsehood.

The cast features Kathleen Grace Fiori, Dennis Fox, Nneoma Nkuku, Serge Thony, and Rick Younger
