Enjoy a LIVE and FREE online presentation of this work previously presented at the Consulate of Ireland New York and the Eugene O’Neill International Theatre Festival in New Ross, Ireland. 

Eugene O’Neill is the only American playwright to have won four Pulitzer Prizes and the Nobel Prize for literature. The genius of O’Neill as a dramatist derives from his Catholic upbringing and education, which were the product of his Irish-American family background and the social-historical forces of immigration of the time.
