About The Emperor Jones - Off Broadway
Eugene O'Neill's brilliant groundbreaking play, The Emperor Jones, is the story of Brutus Jones, an African-American man who sets himself up as monarch of a Caribbean island following a prison break in the Unites States. When the natives rebel after years of exploitation, Jones's mesmerizing journey into darkness becomes a terrifying psychological portrayal of power, fear and madness. With his demons in heavy pursuit and tom-toms beating, the Emperor is forced to confront the mortal sins of his past in search of forgiveness and salvation.
John Douglas Thompson—OBIE and Lucille Lortel Award-winning actor for last season's acclaimed revival of Othello—portrays the enigmatic emperor. The cast also features Peter Cormican. Ciaran O'Reilly, whose direction of O'Neill's The Hairy Ape earned him Drama Desk, Drama League and Callaway award nominations, directs.
