WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An American playwright and an Irish director team up for an adaptation of nineteenth-century Irish playwright Dion Boucicault's notorious nineteenth-century melodrama about Americans. (And slavery.) The Octoroon: An Adaptation of The Octoroon Based on The Octoroon is a bombastic, super-theatrical, full-scale investigation of the sweetest of intersections - theatre and identity politics. This play with real actors and real sets and real costumes seeks to understand why New York audiences can't seem to get enough of plays about Irish folks and black people and racism and, um, America?
