Approx. 90 min with no intermission
The New York Neo-Futurists release Eugene O’Neill’s stage directions from their dissertation prison and transform them into rip-roaring physical comedy – in under 90 minutes. Now a Broadway mainstay, O’Neill was considered an experimental playwright when he defied the melodramatic conventions of his day. The Neo-Futurists return O’Neill to his roots in this chronicle described by the New York Times as “an impish illustration of how lively entertainment can be created from theatrical spare parts,” which includes selections from two “sea plays,” the one-act A Wife for a Life (O’Neill’s first play) and the satire Now I Ask You.
