An Octoroon

Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 8:00pm

"AN OCTOROON insists that making theater can be the best way to talk back to history.” -The Village Voice

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.

Direction by Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates; Featuring Jamar Jones, Cole Metz, Jeremy Morris, Juliana Caycedo, Khadijah Franks, Asjah Janece, Trinitee Pearson, and Maggie Roop.
