Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Obie Award-winning comedy – getting its area premiere from Stage West – is a wicked-smart, post-modern minstrel show. It’s a mockery of a satire of a spoof of a provocation.
At Stage West, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' An Octoroon keeps audiences uncomfortable, and laughing—exactly as it should.
Join us for a 15-20 min discussion of ideas and themes after most performances of An Octoroon. A member of the artistic or production staff, plus – on selected dates – a local expert, artist, or scholar is on hand to facilitate the exchange.
