Drawing from the energy and power of hip-hop, stand-up and spoken-word, Against Oblivion is a brand-new collection of three one-acts that tackle such issues as surviving abuse, speaking up for what you believe and making ends meet in the new economy. Designed to delight, inspire and challenge, and woven together by a dynamic musical score created with Scott Doherty and Adam Phalen, Against Oblivion is a modern musical for our times.

Steve Connell is an acclaimed actor, renowned playwright and a national poetry champion. His work has been featured on ABC, MSNBC, HBO, SHOWTIME, BET and MTV, and hailed by critics as
“powerful theatre,” “hilarious” and “brilliant.” He has performed privately for Oprah Winfrey, Norman Lear, Quincy Jones, Maya Angelou, Julie Taymor and President Barack Obama and shared the stage with the Black Eyed Peas, Robin Williams and Stevie Wonder. His play The Word Begins (written with Sekou Andrews) was nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards, including Best Acting and Best Original Play. It ran last January at New York’s famed Public Theater and will headline the inaugural RADAR LA Festival in June. His hit one-man show 40 Days was an LA Weekly “Pick of the Week” and earned him Backstage West’s award for Best Solo Performance of 2005.
