To mark this special occasion he has written and directed one of his most scintillating plays ever titled 56 East Avenue, with sold out performances and great reviews in Jamaica, Caribbean, America, and Canada.

Its is a side splitting, rib tickling,knee slapping play depicting life in a ‘Tenament yaad,’ it details the chronicles of a landlord trying to collect rent from delinquent tenants while at the same time creating a comfortable living space for the others.

56 East Avenue is a slice of life from a time when Jamaica was at its most colourful, 1970’s.The late great Jacob Miller’s song sums it up nicely, “Dreadlocks caan live in a tenament yard.”

For the unique production Oliver has handpicked a star studded line up which features his old sparring partner the Great Vollier “Maffy”Johnson, the dynamic Audrey“Dance Hall Queen”Reid, the talented Dennis Titus and Lakesha Ellison
