Eugene O’Neill’s warmest, most delightful play is an authentic portrait of a Connecticut childhood - complete with moonlit beaches, firecrackers, booze and a powerfully dark undertow.
Over Independence Day weekend, teenager Richard Miller navigates young love in his idyllic home town. A staple in the US but rarely seen in the UK, O’Neill’s prelude to A Long Day’s Journey into Night is an essential part of the life’s work of this great American playwright.
With Janie Dee (Noises Off, NSFW) and George MacKay (Pride, Sunshine on Leith), directed by Natalie Abrahami following her acclaimed Happy Days.
"A miracle of sense and sensibility... vividly alive."
