Show Description

A mysterious gift of foresight is imposed on Eleanor. The secret to unraveling its mystery, Eleanor realizes, is embedded in her mother’s newfound visions of the future.

But Eleanor quickly recognizes that there is no room for miscalculations for if she gets it wrong, she will soon die a dreadfully agonizing death.

Established in 2011, OnxyFest is striving to become, in the words of the late playwright, August Wilson, a festival that “informs its viewers of the human condition and its power to heal.” OnyxFest is determined to be the vehicle to promote and expose avid theatre goers to the voices and talent of new and emerging African American playwrights.

INFINITY

INFINITY Directed by Ronan Marra

How does a new Theory of Time change everything we know about ourselves? Three brilliant minds – a musician, a mathematician, and a theoretical physicist – smash together like colliding particles in an accelerator. Together they learn that love and time are connected in ways they couldn’t have imagined. Infinity is a shocking, funny and revelatory play about love, sex, & math by Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch, with original violin composition by Njo Kong Kie.

TRUTH - THE ONE MAN SHOW

Truth— The One Man Show is the culmination of 152 years of truth coming from the souls of four individuals. Silas Christian, a runaway slave; Harley Wallace, a Klu Klux Klan member; Malik Muhammad, a Civil Rights Activist and Jackson Thomas, a misguided young man are all fighting for family.

The Quilting

The Quilting is an autobiographical play that depicts the abuse the playwright’s mother endured and how her strength had the ability to heal. The importance of this piece is that it shows the rippling effects of abuse and shows that in spite of the terror of abuse there is still the possibility of hope, self-realization, and forgiveness.
