Volume 1: Early Plays/Lost Plays

April 19-22 in the Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle at the Mead Center (times vary)
To purchase, visit arenastage.org or call 202-488-3300.

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.

There’s something about many of these that manages to distill the essence of the movie into that one visual gesture in the best way: story AND tone.
