Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night was written 75 years ago, but its revelations on substance use, alcoholism, family dynamics and emotional pain are as resonant and relevant today as ever.
Join Everyman Theatre and the New Day Campaign as we welcome artists, performers, addiction experts, and families to share through art, song, and words reflections and experiences. Related to and inspired by O’Neill’s award-winning play, we will explore what affects those touched by addiction the most: the allure of using as an escape from our pain; the role of guilt and blame; the inevitability of suspicion and harm that comes with broken trust; the confusion and ambivalence we feel.
New Day Campaign founder Peter Bruun uses excerpts from the play as a catalyst for a facilitated conversation with clients, families, and staff from Ashley Addiction Treatment, Black Mental Health Alliance, Marian House, and Maryland Coalition for Families—Baltimore area treatment and family-support programs who share their expertise, experiences, and resources. All is punctuated with art by Anthony Ness, Elisif Bruun, and Ben Cricchi, music from ellen cherry and QueenEarth, and poetry and spoken word from Clarence Brown and Kondwani Fidel.
Make your reservation today and experience the upbeat vibe of the New Day Campaign with its unique blend of fellowship and artistic sharing—all the while connecting to resources supporting families and individuals touched by substance use, and discovering just why Everyman’s production of Long Day's Journey Into Night matters and merits being seen.
