“I doubt you’ll ever see it done better.” —Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

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. Ciaran O’Reilly, whose direction of O’Neill’s The Hairy Ape earned him Drama Desk, Drama League and Callaway award nominations, directs.
