Hibernia: New O’Neill Play Makes New York Debut

By Irish America Staff
October / November 2000

In August, the Provincetown Playhouse in New York City hosted the very first production of Eugene O’Neill’s play Personal Equation. The play was written in 1915, while O’Neill was a student at Harvard. Set at the onset of World War I, it is about characters who must decide whether to join the army or the anarchist cause, a choice that ultimately divides a father and son. The play starred Ralph Waite and Daniel McDonald and kicked off the Playwrights Theatre of New York’s annual O’Neill festival.
