NBC 5 and the Stage West Theatre invite you to experience ‘An Octoroon’ by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins at Stage West Theatre in Fort Worth, now through September 30.
This play-within-the-play tells the story of the young, new heir to a Southern plantation and his love of the ward of the estate who is 1/8 black. As the lines between the antebellum and the contemporary begin to blur, this fascinating and hilarious play becomes a moving challenge to the racial climate of America both then and now. It’s a completely unique piece of theatre and not to be missed!
A debt-ridden plantation, a new owner, a lovely young woman with a secret, and an assortment of slaves—these antiquated elements have been mashed up against a contemporary framework to create an astonishing, outrageously comic, and eloquent perspective on race in America, in ‘An Octoroon.’ This Obie award winning play makes its 5-week run at Stage West.
NOTE: This production contains very strong language and adult material.
To learn more, reservations and information are available through the Box Office (817-784-9378), or on the website, www.stagewest.org.
