"Natalie Abrahami's haunting, witty production turns the piece into a dream-like memory play"
"Bittersweet with wonderfully funny performances"
"A visually seductive revival… George MacKay is excellent"
"George MacKay proves himself a stage performer of huge presence and skill"
"This revival boasts fine performances"
"A stern but loving Janie Dee and a staunch but wry Martin Marquez are great as Richard’s parents"
"George Mackay is great: gawky, intense, silly, serious, vibrantly alive"
"A visually seductive revival… Martin Marquez is wonderful, Janie Dee beautifully captures the mother, and there is first-rate support from Dominic Rowan and Susannah Wise"
"Rising star George MacKay excels as O’Neill’s teen rebel"
"George MacKay is an absolute delight"
"Extremely charming - O’Neill’s writing and director Natalie Abrahami’s production beautifully capture the ludicrousness of youth"
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."
