On the last night of The Gathering, a group of Juggalos from different walks of life come together to swap stories, share experiences, and party. As the night unfolds, they begin to question if their shared love of one band is strong enough to create a lasting bond, and what it means to be “fam.” American Juggalo is a new docu-theatre piece adapted from the 2011 documentary short by Sean Dunne along with interviews conducted by the playwrights from Insane Clown Posse shows at Webster Hall, The Well, and the 2018 Gathering of the Juggalos.
