Ochre & Onyx

Come and enjoy free theatre at your neighborhood library

Ochre & Onyx follows the present-day story of an African-American slam poet and an Afro-Latina painter who find themselves in the middle of a struggle for the true soul of the beloved poet and father of the Harlem Renaissance Langston Hughes. Meanwhile, in 1920s Mexico, the young Langston fights to convince his father, James, to finance his study of poetry at Columbia University. As father and son struggle in the past, poet and painter struggle in the present, in two strikingly similar worlds.

Presented by Watts Village Theater Company.
