About the Event:

A comedy of unresolved history that dares to ponder the continuing and far-reaching legacy of American slavery. On the subject of race, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is our country’s most original and illuminating playwright. An Octoroon (the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play) is his unclassifiable adaptation of an 1859 melodrama about illicit interracial love. It is, by turns, riotously funny, gut-wrenchingly disturbing, and always brave. It might just be the most challenging drama that Available Light has ever brought to the stage. “I don’t think it’s too much of a spoiler to reveal that this show ends — spectacularly and hauntingly — with all of us in the dark. As Mr. Jacobs-Jenkins sees it, that’s still the state of the nation.” – NY TimesWritten by Branden Jacob-Jenkins.
