Farrell Taggart boldly attempts to keep his family together in a small Washington Heights tenement, but the ghost from their past - heroin addiction - threatens them at every turn. Farrell has kicked it, but it lives deep in older brother Michael. Younger brother Stephen may be following in their footsteps. If Farrell can find the perfect symmetry within his family, the way he does when he plays the drums, the Taggarts may just find their way through, but the odds are decidedly stacked against them.
Paradiddle is presented as part of the 2012 Dream Up Festival.
