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

Long Day’s Journey into Night

FPTC and WaltersWest Projects present a unique and relevant perspective on Eugene O’Neill’s 1956 drama about an Irish-American family by casting the play completely with actors of color. In doing so, we hold an American classic under the pressure of contemporary scrutiny, providing new insights, addressing a need among local actors of color, fostering audiences of color, and exploring the play's continued relevance to larger questions of what it means to be alive, to be human, to be a family — and to thrive, not just survive. In addition to seeking out social parallels, we champion diversity and collaboration, using music and movement to layer O’Neill’s narrative with an African-American/Latinx flavor and striving to create a space where all are welcome and all voices can be heard.
