An excellent production. Exceptional acting and direction of a difficult but deeply moving play. This was a rare theatrical experience.

As always, A Noise Within and Eugene O'Neill are fantastic and together create memorable productions.

The new space is excellent. Parking and mass transit are easy.

More Information



Young Eben Cabot’s keen and greedy eye is on the farm. His father’s voluptuous new bride Abby has her craven eye on Eben. As they square off to battle for the coveted plot of land, irresistible sexual tension mingles with hate to explosive effect. America’s premiere playwright Eugene O’Neill spins a masterful salute to the combustible essence of great Greek drama.

The cast includes William Dennis Hunt (Ephraim Cabot), Jason Dechert (Eben), Monette Magrath (Abbie Putnam), Stephen Rockwell (Peter), Christopher Fairbanks (Simeon).
