Edgar Oliver, the singular storyteller and beloved downtown NYC theater artist, returns to Axis Theatre to perform the world premiere of Attorney Street, the final installment in a trilogy of solo shows, directed by Randy Sharp, charting Oliver's life in New York City. Following 2014's acclaimed In the Park and, before it, 2009's breakthrough East 10th Street: Self Portrait with Empty House (Edinburgh Fringe First Award; NYT Critic's Pick), Attorney Street follows Oliver as he is forced to leave his longtime home in one of the last East Village SROs, on East 10th Street, and finds his way to his current residence, on Attorney Street on the Lower East Side. Between the two was a circuitous path that held turns and encounters that changed Oliver's life, and opened doors he never thought existed.
