Fort Point Theatre Channel and WaltersWest Project are collaborating on a reimagined production of Eugene O’Neill’s

Long Day’s Journey into Night

This classic, an autobiographical drama about an Irish-American family, will be cast completely with actors of color. The production will stay true to the playwright’s dialogue, including O’Neill’s references to stereotypes about early 1900s Irish immigrants. While focusing on the play's universal humor and truths, we seek out the obvious social parallels; including music and movement to layer the narrative with an African-American/Latinx flavor. Doing this work creates art that continues to resonate, fosters audiences that include more people of color, and stimulates further dialogue.
