AN AMERICAN DRUM CIRCLE  | Open: 05/05/16 Close: 05/22/16
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

UP Theater Company (James Bosley, Artistic Director) was founded in 2010 by Inwood theater artists who endeavored to bring professional productions to their neighborhood of Northern Manhattan. Eschewing crowd-pleasing chestnuts, UP produces provocative new work by contemporary playwrights. After six years and seven full productions, including Ashé, Broad Channel, and last year’s smash Epic Poetry, UP has established a reputation for being gritty, rambunctious, and irreverent.
