Casting dramatized presentation for the play ‘DON’T CALL ME BROTHER’

Performance during upcoming 2015 Atlanta Black Theatre Festival

Another black youth killed by a police officer under questionable circumstances coupled with the ensuing media frenzy over the community’s response to this latest death, forces Andrew Merritt, recently appointed Chief of Police, into a difficult position. Making Andrew’s job even more difficult is Hassan, his highly visible, activist brother. Andrew struggles between his allegiance to the police department where after twenty-four years he finally has an opportunity to step into his destiny and his loyalty to his family and community. Is this promotion really a step up…or a set up?
