about the artist
Edgar Oliver started out performing at the Pyramid nightclub in the early 1980’s. From 1988 to 2001, he wrote and staged a series of autobiographical plays – premiering a new play almost every year in the Club at La MaMa. In recent years, he has written and performed a series of one-man shows that have won much critical acclaim. This past fall, Edgar performed three of these one-man shows – East 10th Street, In the Park and Attorney Street – as a trilogy in repertory at the Axis Theatre.
