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 dastardly M’Closky has other plans — for both Terrebonne and Zoe.
OBIE Award-winning play using the plot of Boucicault’s 1859 melodrama The Octoroon as the starting point for a bigger, wilder, more hilarious play about the tremendous, often tragic difficulties of identity, and life.
