Theater: St. Ann's Warehouse / 38 Water Street, New York, NY,

Synopsis: 

The Wooster Group, has invited Richard Maxwell of New York City Players to direct O'Neill's four Glencairn plays: Bound East for Cardiff (1914), In the Zone (1917), The Long Voyage Home (1917) and The Moon of the Caribbees (1918). Early Plays takes O'Neill's tales of sailors on and off the ocean as a base to explore themes of longing and eternity. Dark episodes showing the underside of turn-of-the-century maritime life--brawls, dances and carousing--are staged with a quotidian grace allowing these simple stories to resonate emotionally.

    February 22, 2012: The weary sameness of life at sea has taken its toll on the crew members of the S.S. Glencairn. Even drunk, desperate and quarrelsome, these sullen salts rarely raise or otherwise vary their voices. They sound pretty much the same whether they’re anguished or angry or excited or on their deathbeds. The monotony of a sailor’s lot has driven them, it would seem, into monotones.

    ‘Early’ O’Neill at sea

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    February 22, 2012: Don’t let the author’s name throw you: Though these “Early Plays” are by Eugene O’Neill, these aren’t your grandmother’s classics.
