African-American Male Actor For "An Octoroon" Play
Location: Miami, FL
Casting for "An Octoroon" by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.
Company announces its first production of 2017/18 season, the Florida premiere of An Octoroon by Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins who takes the plot of Dion Boucicault's 1859 antebellum melodrama, The Octoroon and smashes it with a 21st-century sensibility. Presented through the eyes of the onstage playwright BJJ, this pre-Civil War tale set in the Deep South tells of a slave owner's affections for a woman whose blood is one-eighth Black. Directed by John Rodaz (Carbonell Award) this production will feature choreography and original music to create a theatrical event that is equally hilarious and moving, subversive and provocative.
BJJ/George/M'Closky: Young contemporary playwright struggling to make sense of Boucicault's original. Inquisitive but confused, idealistic but ironic. Also able to step into the classical roles of George and M'Closky.
Rehearsal begins August 21, 2017
