A Moon For The Misbegotten by Eugene O’Neill
A unique blend of comedy, tragedy, autobiography, and imagination. A love story set in 1923 between a Broadway actor, Jim Tyrone, and a Connecticut farm girl named Josie Hogan. Josie and her hard drinking Irish father Phil scheme to hold on to the farm they’ve worked for 20 years. When their neighbour, an oil magnate, stakes a claim on their property they do all they can to stop the sale. Under the light of one night’s magical moon A Moon for The Misbegotten plumbs the depth of the human spirit with tremendous redemptive power.
