Sold-Out Shows, Rave Reviews!

ONAJE sold out all five of our FringeNYC shows, the performances were riveting, and both audiences and critics gave great reviews:

You can also read an interview with producer Sue Conover Marinello, as well as a profile of playwright Robert Bowie, Jr.


In ONAJE, an eccentric hitchhiker is picked up by a headstrong cowboy and spirited waitress, only to discover they are all inextricably linked by the past. ONAJE is about buried secrets, redemption, and the long journey from racism to the seed of a hopeful future. Set in two worlds — against the backdrop of the burning city of Cambridge during Maryland’s race riots of 1967, and the American open road of the 1980s — ONAJE explores the fallout of racial violence, ultimately finding humanity, and hope.

About the Playwright:

Playwright and poet Robert Bowie, Jr. has had nine plays produced through The Baltimore Playwrights Festival (BFF). His political farce, Crash & Burn P.A., was the only submission selected by the Festival in 2016 for a full production at Baltimore’s Theatrical Mining Company. Bowie’s most-recent play, ONAJE, was a semi-finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center 2018 season. It premiered in October to sold-out audiences and critical acclaim at The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC). Bowie is also Poet Laureate of The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA).
