The Complete & Condensed Stage Directions Of Eugene O'Neill Volume 2

New York Neo-Futurists in association with Theater for the New City
City: New York

Additional Notes:
A follow up to the Drama Desk nominated THE COMPLETE AND CONDENSED STAGE DIRECTIONS OF EUGENE O'NEILL, VOLUME 1, which was called "an impish illustration of how lively entertainment can be created from theatrical spare parts" by the New York Times, the New York Neo-Futurists continue the adventure into the subconscious of American theater legend Eugene O'Neill. Removing the dialogue and stripping the plays down to pure action, O'Neill's eloquent yet obsessive and often controlling stage directions become a rip-roaring physical comedy. Now a Broadway mainstay, Eugene O'Neill was once considered an experimental, downtown playwright. His plays defied the melodramatic conventions of the day and much of his work premiered with the Provincetown Players on MacDougall Street. The New York Neo-Futurists return O'Neill to his experimental roots. "A stoner convention for scholars" (Time Out NY on O'Neill V. 1), THE COMPLETE & CONDENSED STAGE DIRECTIONS OF EUGENE O’NEILL, VOLUME 2 spans the years 1913 - 1915, and includes his plays Recklessness, Warnings, Fog, Abortion, and The Sniper.
