Anna Christie tells the moving and groundbreaking story of a young woman with a troubled past and her relationship with her long-lost seafaring father. After the two reunite, Anna strains their renewed rapport when she falls in love with a young sailor -- against her father's wishes. Neither man knows about the painful secret she's carrying, which causes strife for everyone involved once it's revealed. Anna Christie, which won the 1922 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was written by celebrated playwright Eugene O'Neill, is one of the first American plays in which a woman takes charge of her own destiny. This powerful story may have been written in the '20s but it still resonates today. Learn More
