An Octoroon – An Area Stage Company Production @ Area Stage Company at the Riviera Theatre
Sep 17 @ 5:00 pm – Oct 8 @ 7:00 pm

The Area Stage 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) and designed by Giancarlo Rodaz (Carbonell Award nomination) this production will feature choreography and original music to create a theatrical event that is equally hilarious and moving, subversive and provocative.

Winner of the 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play.

“AN OCTOROON invites us to laugh loudly and easily at how naïve the old stereotypes now seem, until nothing seems funny at all…—spectacularly and hauntingly—with all of us in the dark. This decade’s most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today.”—The New York Times.

The Underpants

by Carl Sternheim
and adapted by Steve Martin
September 29th – October 22nd
A public scandal takes place when Theo’s very attractive wife’s underpants fall to the ground during a parade for the King in 1910 Germany. He is a Government Clerk, and this incident is causing him much anxiety as he fears he will lose his job.
What adds to the hilarity of the play is that Theo is desperately trying to rent one of the rooms in their flat to make ends meet and after the incident, a few intriguing men show up interested in being a tenant. As it turns out, each of them were at the parade when his wife’s underpants fell and want to see her close up.
This wild and wacky farce is meant to purely entertain, and legendary comic and musician Steve Martin has done a masterful job in turning it into a play that leaves its audience in stitches.
