  • African-American, black actor, Eugene O'Neill, racism, history

    N

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

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