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 of 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.

Every now and again, an artist deeply touches you... the experience transcending mere interest, pleasure, or delight. Such has been our experience of @phyliciaghee , whose performances mine a deeply spiritual place of profound connection to something so much larger than our every day... to a place of wholeness, presence, and healing. Our #ndcartistoftheweek is Phylicia Ghee, who has been a fixture as an artist for the New Day Campaign since we began in 2015. Our Resident Healing Artist in 2015, Phylicia has presented several extraordinarily powerful performances over the past several years, and will be a part of our activities again in 2018 in a yet-to-be-determined healing arts workshop as part of our programming for “Heroin & Healing,” an exhibition we are presenting with @kentcountyarts . You can see more of Phylicia at her website at https://phyliciaghee.carbonmade.com. #artheals #healingandart #itsanewday #ndcitsanewday
