This Happy Hour is an introduction to our next show, the Obie-award winning satire An Octoroon, by MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.

Based on a controversial classic, this play is part period satire and part meta-theatrical middle finger - it’s a provocative and moving challenge to the racial climate of "the land of the free" in both the antebellum South and today. 

$17 Previews are Aug 30-31. The show opens Sat, Sep 1.  More Info http://stagewest.org/season/octoroon

NOTE: There is no performance after our Happy Hour. The show is still in rehearsals for one more week.
