“[I’m] investigating the historic relationship of American theatrical forms and the question of blackness in society. [An Octoroon] is a radical adaptation of a melodrama from 1859 set on a slave plantation. What’s amazing about melodrama is it’s the science of theatre.”
“My work is fed by a question, it’s fed by a need to understand the world, and why the world is what it is and why I feel the way I feel in the world. I really believe in the power of this form. All I want is for people to leave with something to mull over, and leave with the bravery to actually try to connect, try to understand, and to see each other in each other.” – Branden Jacobs-Jenkins in a video interview with the MacArthur Foundation
Don’t miss the West Coast premiere of An Octoroon, playing June 23-July 23. Tickets start at $29 – half that if you’re under 30! Reserve your seats, or call 510 647-2949, Tue-Sun, noon-7pm.
“So energetic, funny and entertainingly demented, you can’t look away.” – New York Post
“Brilliant…. A work that is infinitely playful and deeply serious and which dazzlingly questions the nature of theatrical illusion.” – Guardian U.K.
“This decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today.” — New York Times
