    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 the script for O’Neill’s first box office hit, The Emperor Jones.  in 1920. The play was turned into a film “The Black Emperor of Broadway” to be screened in 2020. O’Neill and Gilpin 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, 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.
