Eclipse Theatre Company's Eugene O'Neill season concludes with what is widely considered to the playwright's masterpiece. This four-act drama concerns the Tyrone family's affairs on a fog-bound August day. James Tyrone, a vain, faded matinee idol, presides over a household in ruin -- his wife Mary, whose morphine addiction provides escape; son Edmund, tethered to home yet dreaming of life on the open sea; and son Jamie, whose studied cynicism protects him from a lifetime of failure. The family copes with physical and spiritual ruin, even as their lives are bound together by an unbreakable bond of love. O'Neill was posthumously awarded both the Tony Award for Best Play as well as a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1957.
A skilled playwright can draw relatable humor from even the darkest situations, such as a character forgetting which crypt she left her car keys in.
