An Octoroon – Play – ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery Opening weekend of the play An Octoroon. I think they were trying to be “edgy theatre” but ended up being just bizarre. They also did whiteface, blackface, & redface. Not sure what was the point of all the offensive depictions. — attending An Octoroon at ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery.
