Reviews: Onyx Fest at IndyFringe Theatre (NUVO)

The inaugural Onyx Fest, billed as the city's first and only festival dedicated to the work of African-American playwrights, opened last weekend at the IndyFringe Basile Theatre with a slate of three plays. The lineup was selected by Nicole Kearney, a professor of English and drama at Martin University, whose play, re-entry, was one of the three on the bill. The plan is to institute a juried selection process for next year's festival; this year, it was all about getting things off the ground with the resources available.
