An Octoroon
Written by Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Estefania Fadul

Goldstein Theater

A meta-theatrical melodrama of epic proportions! It’s 1859, and Louisiana plantation Terrebonne is on the brink of bankruptcy. Heir apparent George Peyton arrives and falls in love with Zoe, who is one-eighth black. But the villainous overseer M’Closky will stop at nothing to keep Terrebonne and Zoe for himself. Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins explodes Dion Boucicault’s 19th-century melodrama with this radical and funny adaptation- a searing look at race in America today.​​

Time hopping between the 1880s and the 1980s, Caryl Churchill’s award winning play examines the sexual mores of the British Empire and how they evolved.
