WHAT OF THE NIGHT

By María Irene Fornés

Directed by Leah Reddy

Dramaturgy by Gwendolyn Alker

October 24, 25, and 26 in The Irma Sandrey Theatre

What of the Night (1989) by Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés, is a four-act cycle that follows an American family from 1938, to 1958, through the 1970s, and into the hypothetical future. The play, framed by a quote from the Book of Isaiah, is a prophecy about the effects of greed and poverty on American life. A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1990, today that prophecy feels perhaps more urgent than ever before.
