REDCAT says…

The Wooster Group has invited Richard Maxwell of New York City Players to direct Eugene O’Neill’s early “Glencairn” plays—Bound East for Cardiff (1914), The Long Voyage Home (1917), and The Moon of the Caribbees (1918). The production, Early Plays, takes O’Neill’s tales of sailors as a base to explore themes of longing and eternity. Dark episodes showing the underside of turn-of-the-century maritime life—brawls, dances and carousing—are staged with a quotidian grace, allowing these simple stories to resonate emotionally. The episodes are threaded together with haunting melodies, composed and written by Maxwell. The cast features performers from both companies.
