Never seen outside America until 2007, Theodore Ward's landmark family drama, Big White Fog, remains as poignant today as it was when it burst upon the Chicago stage in 1937 - and on to New York, where it was produced by the Negro Playwrights' Company, of which Ward was a co-founder with, among others, Paul Robeson and Langston Hughes.

Theodore Ward, born 1902 in Louisiana, one of 11 children, joined the Chicago branch of the Federal Theatre, where he wrote Big White Fog, staged in New York by the Negro Playwrights Company, which he co-founded with Langston Hughes and Paul Robeson. He wrote 30 more plays - including Our Land, which ran on Broadway - before his death in Chicago in 1883.

Big White Fog is a play by American playwright Theodore Ward and his first major work. The play follows the fictional Mason family across three generations between 1922 and 1933. Half of the family supports a return to Africa and Garveyism, while the other half of the family seeks the American Dream. Completed in 1937, it was first produced by the Negro Unit of the Chicago Federal Theatre Project in 1938 at the Great Northern Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.

With drama and poignancy, Theodore Ward’s Big White Fog challenges our preconceptions of what it means to live the American Dream. Big White Fog - Play. 0. View All Characters in Big White Fog. Guide written by. Jenn Chandler.
