The Kean Theatre Conservatory proudly presents The Octoroon, a new production broadly adapted from the wildly popular 19th century melodrama by Irish playwright Dion Boucicault.

We invite you to examine racism and sexism through the lens of whiteface, redface, and blackface with a multi-ethnic cast that is both adhering to and leaping across the lines of broad racial and sexual stereotypes.

There will be a talk-back after every performance, so be sure to stay once the play ends.

An Octoroon is for mature audiences only, regardless of one’s age.
