Abstract:

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' (a person of one-eighth black ancestry). But, the dastardly M'Closky has other plans - for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' exhilarating play, drawing on Dion Boucicault's 1859 melodrama The Octoroon, won the 2014 Obie Award for Best New American Play. It had its UK premiere at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond in 2017, transferring to the National Theatre, London in 2018.
