Eugene O’Neill’s last play and only true love story will be performed at Staller Center on Saturday, February 13, at 8 pm by actors from Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre. “A Moon for the Misbegotten” draws on autobiographical material from O’Neill’s own life.
Angela Smith stars as Josie Hogan, a boisterous Irish woman with a quick tongue and a tarnished reputation, who lives on a Connecticut tenant farm with her father in the 1920s. James Tyrone Jr., whose family owns the farm, returns to settle the estate when his mother dies and attempts to navigate his complicated relationship with Josie and her father. Tyrone is played by Anthony Lawton and Michael P. Toner plays Phil Hogan, the bullying father.
Tickets are $36 at www.stallercenter.com or call the Staller Center Box Office at (631) 632-ARTS. The Box Office is open for over-the-counter sales Monday through Saturday, 12 pm to 6 pm and one hour before performances.
