Trouble has been a-brewin’ at the Terrebonne Plantation since Judge Peyton died. Money is running out, an evil overseer is up to no good and the heir to the estate is in love with someone he shouldn’t be. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' subversive romp, at Actor's Express, turns 19th-century melodrama on its ear with a combustibility that hurls the antebellum South into a collision course with 21st-century cultural politics. The script by Jacobs-Jenkins (2016's Appropriate) won off-Broadway's 2014 Obie Award for best new American play.
