“AN ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE”
by Eugene O’NeillDirector Miles Potter
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART ACHES.
In this searing cry from the heart, one of the 20th century’s greatest playwrights paints a haunting portrait of his own emotionally damaged family as they struggle – under crushing burdens of guilt, resentment and dread – to maintain the unifying bonds of love.
