Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation Terrebonne is in financial ruins. Peyton’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful octoroon. But the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans—for both Terrebonne and Zoe. In 1859, a famous Irishman wrote this play about slavery in America. Now an American tries to write his own. Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for “Best New American Play,” Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ blistering satire forces us to face what’s changed and what hasn’t in our country’s fraught history of race relations.
