An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

- "[Bavarian-born] Beckett's <em>American Tale</em> is fascinating from beginning to end. Taking it one day at a time and one lady at a time, Beckett tells his heartfelt, candid life story, creatively with song and dance. Under the brilliant direction of Mitzie Welch and musical direction of Ken Welch. Beckett presses all the right buttons and takes all the right steps, as a consummate entertainer." --<em>Tolucan Times</em> (Read the<a target="_blank" href="http://tolucantimes.info/2009/10/14/beckett-presses-buttons-in-his-comedy-drama-musical/"> full review</a>.)
