THE EMPEROR JONES by Eugene O'Neill, a New City Company production
Starring stage and screen star, Carl Lumbly with a short film introduction about the play's original lead, Charles Gilpin.
A unique theatre experience staged in a warehouse in the Butchertown area of San Francisco.
Greed and ingenuity. Restoration of natural order. The Emperor Jones is an exploration of an ill-fated opportunistic American experience as captured by the brilliant imagination of 20th century playwright Eugene O'Neill. It's the story of a man hastily driven to greatness only to be greeted by persecution from powers still greater: conscience, karma, repentance and a debilitating past.
