Written by Eugene O'Neill
Directed by Thomas A. Power
From the program:
Eugene O'Neill was born in 1888 on Broadway in New York City, the son of the popular actor James O'Neill. His early education was obtained at several private schools in New England, with a single year of college at Princeton. During a period of almost 70 years, O'Neill wrote over 25 major . plays. The consensus today is that Desire Under the Elms is the most effective of O'Neill's plays. It has been described as both a domestic tragedy and . a sex tragedy and is distinctly American in tone and atmosphere. It is an extremely challenging drama for college students and University audiences.
