Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

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.
