“this decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today” –The New York Times

Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, described by the New York Times as one of “this country’s most original and illuminating writers about race,” pens this funny, disturbing, whirlwind of a play about the antebellum South and our present-day American selves. Adapted from Dion Boucicault’s 19th-century melodrama about an illicit interracial love affair, An Octoroon is a full-blooded, energetic, funny, and entertainingly demented investigation of race and cultural politics. Jacobs-Jenkins’ “Neighbors” opened Mixed Blood’s 2011-12 season.
