Florida premiere of An Octoroon by Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins who takes the plot of Dion Boucicault’s 1859 antebellum melodrama, The Octoroon, and smashes it with a 21st-century sensibility. Directed by John Rodaz (Carbonell Award winner) and designed by Giancarlo Rodaz (Carbonell Award nominee) this production will feature original music to create a theatrical event that is equally hilarious and moving, subversive and provocative.
Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play.
