Fiction

A community is damned never to dance.
Malleah and his family go on the war path, to challenge their status quo, with dire consequences.

Amazon

This play is a metaphor on political elite holding on tight to the reigns of power. Malleah's children are caught in the web of deciding to have a dance assignment...or not.  


Excerpt

...it's a worm's philosophy! You dig and hide yourself from your assumed enemies, only to wriggle your back side and fill your roof with shit!You forget that the sun comes up in no time and the stench o stifles you until you choke! And then, the rains come pouring down, washing all that vile right on to your face! A shitty solution! Giving in to tyranny! So go on living like worms!

Reader Reviews for "Drums That Dance In The Dark"

Reviewed by Elijah Meeks 4/20/2009
This play and performance, set explicitly by the author in no specific place or time, extols the pain of a culture through its focus on the right, and consequences, of dance. At times heartfelt or ironic, it dwells on the existentialist nature of life in the every-village of Africa, and the struggle within classes and families for the right to express and ultimately sacrifice. It is through works such as these that non-Africans can get some sense of the real Africa, that exists behind the orientalized impressions of Africa as colony or periphery. What may be seen by some readers as arbitrary results disconnected from actors is really the expression of culture through more classical language, akin to the Greek Tragic experience.
