The Company One theatrical production, “An Octoroon,” is getting great reviews. Check out one below:
The hottest play of 1859 is back! Sort of …
There’s trouble at the plantation: No one is falling in love with who they should be, someone has been murdered, and, unless the mail comes soon, all hope is lost! Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (author of Neighbors, Appropriate) radically revises a 19th century melodrama — complete with blushing Southern belles, dastardly schemes, and budding forbidden romances — for today’s “post-racial,” spectacle-obsessed world. Winner of the 2014 Obie Award for Best New American Play, An Octoroon is an incendiary, subversively funny exploration of identity, jammed with sensation and surprises!
Check out the play through Feb. 27 at Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theatre – Emerson/Paramount Center (559 Washington Street). Tickets start at $15.00. Get yours here.
