WHAT OF THE NIGHT
by María Irene Fornés
directed by Leah Reddy
dramaturgy by Gwendolyn Alker
What of the Night 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.
