An Octaroon by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

Greer Garson Theatre-Owen Arts Ctr
Wednesday, Mar 1, 2023 at 8:00 PM (CT)

Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation Terrebonne is in financial ruins. Peyton’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful octoroon. But the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans—for both Terrebonne and Zoe. In 1859, a famous Irishman wrote this play about slavery in America. Now an American tries to write his own.

Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins blistering satire forces us to face what’s changed and what hasn’t in our country’s fraught history of race relations.

This production will be directed by Kara-Lynn Vaeni.

Seating will be General Admission for this production.  Arrive early to get your preferred seat!
