Mourning Becomes Electra
This expressionistic work is Eugene O'Neill's classic American drama of love, revenge, murder and suicide. Set against the backdrop of a small New England town in the post-Civil War era, O'Neill's saga of family discord fueled by psychological undercurrents is from Aeschylus' The Oresteia. The end result is one of the American theatre's most shattering epic works.
