A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN

By Eugene O’Neill
Directed by Joy Carlin

In this soaring and poignant play by four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Nobel Laureate Eugene O’Neill, a barren patch of land on a Connecticut farm in 1923 sets the stage for two lost souls to find hope under a lover’s moon. The boisterous and sharp-tongued Josie Hogan seems destined to live her life alone working a rented farm with her bullying father. When the weary but charming Jamie Tyrone returns to settle the farm’s estate which was owned by his late mother, sparks fly, hearts open, and desire just might make dreams come true. Moon is a moving exploration of the power of our humanity.


“O’Neill at the height of his powers… hauntingly poetic truths about love and self-delusion.” – Los Angeles Times
