Padua Playwrights will present the new play Onion Creek by playwright Roger Q. Mason for a limited engagement from December 2 -11 at the Son of Semele Theater in Los Angeles. June Carryl will direct.

Onion Creek is set in the summer of 1873 in Del Valle, Texas and centers on an encounter between Nathaniel Haws, the mixed-race son of a former slave owner and Minerva Simmons, an Irish traveler with a haunted past. When Nathaniel's relationship with Minerva moves from the field to the ranch house, their growing intimacy teaches both generations of Haws men the true meaning of legacy and identity.

The cast will include Bridget Flanery Fownes, David Haley, and Julanne Chidi Hill.
