An OctoroonIn 1859, white Irish playwright Dion Boucicault writes a hit play about America. Today, a black American playwright attempts to do the same. Described by the New York Times as "this decade's most eloquent statement on race in America today", Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' provocative play comes to the National Theatre after a sold out run at the Orange Tree Theatre. The cast includes Cassie Clare, Emmanuella Cole, Celeste Dodwell and Iola Evans with puppetry by Jimmy Grimes and fight direction by Kev McCurdy.

About National Theatre: Dorfman

In place of the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
