Echoes of Octavia

About This Show

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU), Patrick Blake, and Rhymes Over Beats present Echoes of Octavia by Michelle T. Johnson on Monday, June 15, 2015 at 7pm at the SoHo Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, NYC. Echoes of Octavia is directed by Brent Buell and features Onyi Okoli, Tyson Hall, Nina Yvette Coleman, Erick Carter, Torre Reigns, Jada Castillo, Alisha Espinosa. The play takes place in Octavia’s Diner, a cozy, family-owned soul food restaurant in the middle of a black neighborhood in the Midwest. Zora, the business mind of the diner, receives the offer of a lifetime – a chance to write a book about the legendary sci-fi author Octavia Butler. She’d have to move half way across the country to work on it, but her father wants her to stay and run the diner. She’s torn between family duty and her dream.

Admission is free, but Reservations are required. Please RSVP at least one day in advance (or much sooner) by calling (212)-714-7628, or e-mailing
