Anna Christie
Eugene O'Neill's epic Pulitzer Prize-winning play about love and forgiveness charts one woman's longing to forget the dark secrets of her past and hope for salvation. Exiled from her home by the Old Devil Sea to the inland plains, Anna Christie's life changed for ever at just five years of age. Fifteen years later, she is reunited with the Father who sent her away, and sets sail in search of a new beginning.

Blind Alley Guy: Notes for an Unfinished Play by Eugene ONeill

Synopsis:
A sociopathic gangster goes to the electric chair in the last play Eugene O'Neill ever attempted (and failed) to write. Exactly two months after completing what would come to be considered his masterpiece, Long Day's Journey into Night, Eugene O'Neill conceived of a new Drama about a gangster sentenced to death in the electric chair. For two years he developed this idea, drafting pages of handwritten notes. By then it was 1943 and O'Neill, at 55 years old, was beset by tremors in his hand so terrible he couldn't even hold a pencil. He abandoned writing in June of that year, ten years before his death. Blind Alley Guy would be the last play he would ever attempt. Blind Alley Guy: Notes for Unfinished Play by Eugene O'Neill is highly physical, mashing clowning in the manner of Chaplin with the brooding tragic style of O'Neill's great work. Trapped in a cycle of varying edits and re-writes, the White Family is portrayed as frantic puppets of an unseen and obviously uncertain creator, hystErically reenacting moments of their story as they hurtle in no particular direction toward utter devastation.

Hairy Ape, The
In the boiler room of a transAtlantic liner, Yank is the top man. Strong, brutal and macho he despises everyone and everything, Left and Right, old and new, rich and poor. He knows where he belongs and enjoys his lifestyle. When a decadent millionaire's daughter, Mildred Douglas, indulges herself in a little social work and descends to the bowels of the ship to see the workers she is horror struck and repulsed by the 'hairy ape' Yank and his filthy companions. Her looks and comments enrage Yank and he swears to get even with her. On land in New York, Yank and his well-meaning mate Long, become involved in a brawl outside a church and the 'ape' ends up in jail where he joins up with a revolutionary group, but they cannot handle his mindless schemes which include blowing up Mildred's father's factory. He finally ends up in a zoo park, where he at last finds someone who will listen to his primitive philosophical rantings, a gorilla. When he naively opens up the cage door for his new-found friend he too finds out what it is like to be the victim of mindless violence.

Long Voyage Home, The

Long Voyage Home, The
Four tough merchant seamen, Olson, Driscoll, Cocky and Ivan arrive at a rough Docklands pub to celebrate the completion of a tour of duty. All but Olson, who wishes to stay sober, are soon so drunk that one of them, Ivan, slides into a stupor and has to be helped back to his lodgings by Driscoll and Cocky. Olson stays in the pub to wait for Driscoll and Cocky to return, and the pub's landlord sends one of his barmAIDS, Freda, to engage Olson in conversation. Freda discovers that Olson has foregone drink in fear that, once he starts, he is likely to go too far, and thus disrupt his plan to quit the sea, return to his native Sweden, and put the wages he has saved for two years into a small farm. Fat Joe, the landlord, has other plans. He has been offered a bribe by the Captain of a near derelict ship to provide a crewman for a gruelling trip around the Horn of Africa. Using Freda as cover, Fat Joe spikes Olson's ginger beer with a sleeping draught, robs him of his savings, and when he falls unconscious, turns him over to the Captain who had offered the bribe. Olson is dragged off to his fate just before Driscoll and Cocky, who might have saved him, come back to continue their binge.
