Billed as "part period satire, part meta-theatrical middle finger," Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Obie-winning An Octoroon is a raucously irreverent riff on a 19th-century antebellum melodrama.

This incendiary adaptation by Jacobs-Jenkins was lauded by The New York Times as "... this decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today" and comes to the Atlanta stage courtesy of Actor's Express.
