Mrs. Marie Moore-Forrest, Executive Head of the Washington Community Service, under whose direction this play has been produced has contributed very largely to the success of this work. Howard University cannot sufficiently express its sincere appreciation of her generous interest and untiring services in the development of its Department of Dramatic Art.

The scenery of this production has been designed and constructed by students of the Department of Dramatic Art in the Workshop under the direction of Cleon Throckmorton, Technical Director of the Provincetown Players, whose sets for the New York production had so much to do with its success.

The costumes are the work of the young ladies of the Department under the supervision of Miss Sue Gossin and Miss Evelyn Lightner.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Eugene O'Neill and the Provincetown Players for permission to present "The Emperor Jones" and for their active interest in our efforts.

We are under great obligations for the assistance generously given us by Community Service and the Community Center Department of the Public Schools.
