LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT is Eugene O'Neill's semi-autobiographical, Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the Tyrone family, and one sultry day in 1912, when they find themselves drifting into a world where the past is the present and the present is haunted by guilty secrets. This production presents a unique and relevant perspective on the play, casting actors of color as the Tyrone family, and infusing ONeills play with African Diaspora music and movement. Inspired by the recent Black Out events for Broadway's Slave Play, in which Black individuals filled the entire 800 seat house one performance and the on-going #BlackOutBoston movement created by The Front Porch Arts Collective, we are inviting you to a gathering of POC-identified artists, activists, intellectuals, creatives, and students for a chance to experience our production of Long Day's Journey Into Night with an entirely Black and Brown audience. The evening will feature the performance, a talkback with cast, and food and refreshments afterwards. Its a celebration but its also a significant milestone in Boston. Because this is a first, and we need you there to help us savor the flavor! Tickets are reduced to be affordable: $10 for Seniors and Students/$15 for general admission. And of course if you would like to be a sponsor, we offer a $50 ticket and thank you for your generosity! ABOUT THE PRODUCTION Directed by Boston director, Fort Point Theatre Channels Amy S. West, the production features a cast of actors of color, and holds this American classic under the pressure of contemporary scrutiny, exploring the plays continued relevance, as well as the larger questions of what it means to be alive, to be human, to be a family --and to thrive, not just survive. TALKBACK THEME The importance of envisioning old stories in new ways, making stories and roles available to everyone, and the challenges of self-producing and creating the art you want to see in the world.
