An Octoroon

Artists Repertory Theatre
1515 SW Morrison Portland

An Octoroon is Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Obie-winning raucously irreverent riff (think Gone With the Wind meets Looney Tunes) on a 19th-century antebellum melodrama. At a plantation on the brink of foreclosure, a young man takes a fancy to the mixed race daughter of the estate's owner, while an evil swindler schemes to buy the girl for himself, while the slaves try to keep things sane. Billed as "part period satire, part meta-theatrical middle finger," this incendiary adaptation by Jacobs-Jenkins, a recent MacArthur "Genius Grant" winner, was lauded by the The New York Times as "... this decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today." Don't miss An Octoroon when it comes to Portland's Artists Repertory Theatre.
