Description

The first American dramatist to receive the Nobel Prize for literature, Eugene O’Neill is widely considered our nation’s greatest playwright. A Moon for the Misbegotten, O’Neill’s clever and graceful sequel to A Long Day’s Journey into Night, centers on Josie Hogan, a tough farm girl with a sharp tongue and a bad reputation, her curmudgeonly father, Phil, and their cynical landlord, James Tyrone. In one whiskey-soaked, moonlit night, Josie and Tyrone fight a high-stakes battle of wits. By the time the sun rises, the imperfect lovers have broken free from the carefully constructed personas that have bound them throughout their lives.

Also features A.C.T. core acting company member Marco Barricelli as O’Neill’s conflicted hero, James Tyrone.
