"Octoroon" is not a term you hear much anymore. It refers to a person who is one-eighth black. Having one great-grandparent who was a descendant of Africa placed those in the Old South in a social category all their own. The Area Stage is putting on a production of An Octoroon, written by Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins based on Dion Boucicault’s 1859 book. The playwright tells the story of a pre-Civil War South and the love a slave owner has for a woman who fits the category of the title. The production features music and choreography and is both funny and provocative. There are sexual themes, so leave the kids at home. 5 p.m. Sunday at Area Stage Company, 1560 S. Dixie Hwy., Coral Gables; 305-666-2078; Tickets cost $20 to $45.
