OnyxFest is Indianapolis’ first and only theatre festival dedicated to the stories of African American playwrights. What began in 2012, is back again to share with you all the experience of a lifetime. Dive deep into the telling stories and experience a new perspective.
Enjoy three captivating plays
- The Quilting: depicts the abuse Mijiza Holiday’s (playwright) 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.

- Black Lives Matter (Too): one part play and one part storypoem that explores the struggles and triumphs of black people from slavery to the present. Buy your tickets here.
- Truth-The One Man Show: 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.
