    N

    by Adrienne Pender
    • 100 minutes
    • 2 Males, 1 Female

    Diverse Cast, Drama

    Adrienne Earle Pender’s “N” dramatizes the struggle between playwright Eugene O’Neill and actor Charles Sidney Gilpin over the inclusion of the “N” word in O’Neill’s script in 1920, as they mount O’Neill’s first box office hit, The Emperor Jones. They fight from rehearsal to Broadway run and, eventually, to the London tour. To Eugene O’Neill, a word is just a word.  For Charles Gilpin, who becomes the first black man to be honored by the Drama League of New York, those six letters have the power to unravel everything that he has ever worked for. At stake for O’Neill? His artistic vision. For Gilpin? His entire career and family.
