Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Eugene O'Neill's epic take on the Greek myth of Oresteia, Mourning Becomes Electra moves the timeless tragedy to post-Civil War New England. There, a wealthy mother and daughter clash in a quest for redemption as they battle against their family's apparent fate in a seemingly endless cycle of murder, adultery, incest and revenge. This Quintessence Theatre Group production includes all three parts of O'Neill's masterpiece, promising an epic and devastating theatrical experience. Learn More
