About the Play
Harlem, Père Lachaise Cemetery, rock ’n’ roll, Jim Morrison, Richard Wright, poetry and ghosts. Celebrated playwright/performer Dael Orlandersmith returns to Long Wharf Theatre for a limited world premiere run of her newest play, Forever. Forever is a riveting and masterful piece about family—the ones we were born into, the ones we create for ourselves—and the legacies that shape us all.
“Dael Orlandersmith is a highly acclaimed playwright, but it’s her breathtaking command of the stage as the star of her own works, many of which are solo shows, that often most impresses.” - TheaterMania
