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.

By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins • Directed by David Reed
Black Box • Rated R

"[A] wildly imaginative new work by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. An Octoroon simultaneously gives us [Dion Boucicault's] great melodrama and its contemporary reverberations. [The play] might induce vertigo, but it insists that making theater can be the best way to talk back to history." –The Village Voice
