A modern riff on Dion Boucicault’s 1859 classic melodrama, The Octoroon, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Obie Award-winning historical satire follows a plantation in financial ruin, the tumultuous love story of its heir apparent, the evil overseer plotting to take it all for himself and the slaves trying to keep it all together. Hilarious, pointed, and provocative, An Octoroon offers up a subversive take on race in America–both then and now.
Featuring ensemble members Carley Cornelius, Kelson McAuliffe, Tyrone Phillips and Chris Sheard with Breon Arzell, Sydney Charles, Danielle Davis, Tiffany Oglesby, Maya Prentiss and Ariel Richardson.
