  • Editor’s Foreword
    • Abstract: I like that this issue of the O’Neill Review—my last as editor—ventures a new approach to what an academic journal can be, looking at how the literary arts of Eugene O’Neill, drama, monologue, and poetry, can be used to reflect on that great writer and difficult man. As the journal advances into the hands of other O’Neill Society members, it seems appropriate also that this transitional issue is more than ever a product of collaborative work. We have always had excellent book review and performance review editors, and I want to thank Kurt Eisen and J. Chris Westgate in the former capacity and J. Chris Westgate, Robert McLean, and Katie Johnson in the latter for all the work they have done to bring a creative and ... Read More

  • Anna and The Antichrist: Nietzsche, Christian Symbolism, and Vedantic
           Philosophy in “Anna Christie”
    • Abstract: In his December 1921 letter to the dramatic editor of the New York Times, Eugene O’Neill defends his ending to “Anna Christie” by arguing that he was trying to render the “dramatic gathering of new forces out of the old” and “have the audience leave with a deep feeling of life flowing on.” He offers this perspective, which proposes a fluid universe where the past “is never the past but always the birth of the future,” so that his critics might consider the play on philosophic grounds rather than employ the crude distinction of a “happy” or “sad” ending.1 This plea and the rest of his arguments in the letter seem to have fallen on deaf ears when we consider the bulk of later critical responses—not to mention ...

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The mirror held up to nature applies sometimes literally when the playwright becomes a character in a play. Since Aristophanes made Euripides his main character in The Frogs (with grumpy Aeschylus his antagonist), the dramatist dramatized has been a recurrent motif in Western theater history. Among Prospero’s self-reflective books, we find a wide array of works from Molière’s Impromptu to Gross Indecency to My Week with Marilyn (also known as “My Year Before After the Fall”). Shakespeare has appeared in almost every medium, including video games (head to head with Ben Jonson or Bernard Shaw, depending on your avatar?).Eugene O’Neill, with his knack for self-dramatizing, took first crack at the plotline of his life ...

  • Representations of Eugene O’Neill: Fiction, Autobiography, and
           Adaptation
    • Abstract: Sponsored by the Eugene O’Neill Society at the 40th Annual Comparative Drama Conference, Baltimore, MD, 2016This year’s O’Neill Society panel at the Comparative Drama Conference (CDC) developed in response to the call put out by Davies King and Beth Wynstra for a special section of the O’Neill Review devoted to representations of Eugene O’Neill. We merged that topic with a proposal to the CDC from the previous year concerning recent books on O’Neill, a panel that had been cut due to lack of a slot. Then we heard that Tony Kushner was going to be the keynote speaker at the CDC in 2016. Kushner, whose “The Genius of O’Neill” was reprinted in the 2004 issue of the EOR, has written the libretto for an opera about ... Read More

  • O’Neill on the Musical Theater Stage
    • Abstract: For some familiar—and two perhaps less familiar—indications of Eugene O’Neill’s re-emergence into prominence in the middle of the twentieth century, I want to take you back to the 1950s. On November 27, 1953, O’Neill died in a Boston hotel, uttering his famous last words, “Born in a hotel room—and God damn it, died in a hotel room.” His work had not been seen in New York since 1946 when The Iceman Cometh played on Broadway. While it is probably an exaggeration to say he was forgotten, he certainly was not on the top of anyone’s list of playwrights whose work might insure box office success. Then, in May 1956, Theodore Mann, Leigh Connell, and José Quintero produced their famously successful revival of Iceman at New ... Read More

  • A New Insight Into Edmund Tyrone by Way of the Second Girl
    • Abstract: In light of this panel’s theme, “Representations of Eugene O’Neill,” and in consideration of the Roundabout Theatre Company’s superbly cast current revival of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, I’d like to discuss O’Neill’s most renowned autobiographical avatar: Edmund Tyrone. Recent circumstances have led me to do so by way of the relatively minor character in the epic family tragedy, the Tyrone family’s “second girl” Cathleen. The role of Edmund is being performed this spring by John Gallagher Jr., with Gabriel Byrne as James, Jessica Lange as Mary, and Michael Shannon as Jamie. Although at this point I have no idea how Gallagher plans to interpret the role, about a month ago I received an e-mail out of the blue from ... Read More

  • The Gelbs’ Lifelong Journey with O’Neill
    • Abstract: When Arthur and Barbara Gelb began their epic journey to write the first full-scale biography of Eugene O’Neill, Arthur was thirty-two and Barbara thirty He was the assistant drama critic at the New York Times, having worked his way up from the mailroom, and she was a published writer and stepdaughter of playwright S. N. Behrman. Both had been avid theatergoers since childhood. They had attended the last O’Neill Broadway production before his death: The Iceman Cometh in 1946. In 1956, just three years after O’Neill’s death, the New York Times’s chief drama critic Brooks Atkinson suggested they take on an assignment from Harper and Brothers, one that he felt he couldn’t begin at his age. Atkinson convinced the ... Read More

  • Et in Arcadia E.G.O.
    • Abstract: First to play the part of Eugene O’Neill was not Jack Nicholson in Reds but someone—a no-one—named Eugene G. O’Neill. This stammering poet had learned enough of the theater from his actor father to understand that a role must be realized from outside in and inside out. Looking something like the figure in this photograph, he crafted an image of himself as artist, not “nothing,” in his 1914 letter to George Pierce Baker in which he inquired about admission to Harvard as a “special student.” He signed this fiction-filled letter of self-recommendation “Eugene G. O’Neill.” That middle G remained in his name as late as Exorcism (1919-1920)—and later—because of the initials E.G.O. Aware that self-possession was a mode of ... Read More

  • O’Neill In and Out of the Classroom
    • Abstract: I am interested in how the image of Eugene O’Neill forms in the imagination of a particular audience: undergraduate students. The inspiration for my presentation came from the recent PBS American Experience documentary on the late Mike Nichols. While recalling the works and people who influenced him, Nichols remarked, “Sometime between the ages of twelve and fourteen, I read every word that Eugene O’Neill ever wrote.” Now, we would certainly love for our young students to follow a similar reading trajectory, but the fact is that most students do not encounter O’Neill until their undergraduate years, at which point many respond strongly to the works of the great American playwright. Students who read a play like ... Read More

  • The Second Girl
    • Abstract: The bridging of two worlds, Ireland and America, is something I have been trying to construct creatively for quite a while. But I couldn’t find a way to bring them together cohesively until I picked up Long Day’s Journey Into Night. I heard the laughter from the boys at breakfast and then those long arias of melancholy, and I wondered how the servants related to it all. I wondered what they were doing while Mary Tyrone was in the spare room. I wondered how it informed their day, what were their worries and concerns, where were they from, and what was their story? And this is why writers write. They need to know the answers to slake their thirst.The Second Girl is located in the kitchen of Monte Cristo Cottage and ... Read More

  • Journey (an excerpt from a three-act play)
    • Abstract: Life in itself is nothing, it is the dream, that keeps us fighting, willing, living.During my senior year at Vassar, I directed a production of O’Neill’s Dynamo in the Powerhouse Theatre. During the research phase, I became fascinated with the relationship of O’Neill’s life and work. After college I ended up writing and producing an Equity showcase Off-Off-Broadway production of Dreams of the Son: A Life of Eugene O’Neill in New York City. Fred Wilkins, editor of the Eugene O’Neill Newsletter, noted in the Summer-Fall 1984 edition that this was the first play to be produced about O’Neill: “The play deals with O’Neill’s life, including his relationships with his father, mother, brother, Louis Halliday [sic], Agnes ...

  • Boy with a Book
    • Abstract: The following monologue is inspired by the photograph of the O’Neill family, minus Ella, sitting in rocking chairs on the porch of their New London home. The young O’Neill has a book in his lap, and he is looking at the book and not at the camera. His father, James, scowls, while older brother Jamie simply stares. The monologue imagines what the boy is thinking as a rare family photograph is taken.The challenge in imagining O’Neill as a child is that his unconventional childhood produced an unconventional child. Even as a child, O’Neill had little understanding of children. According to one biographer, “children would always remain to him a separate race, unfamiliar and without interest.”1 Until he was sent away to ... Read More

  • The Ecological O’Neill: Nature’s Veiled Purpose in the Plays by Robert
           Baker-White (review)
    • Abstract: Robert Baker-White’s The Ecological O’Neill: Nature’s Veiled Purpose in the Plays provides a comprehensive overview of what is one of the more significant themes running through O’Neill’s works, from his earliest to his final plays: the presence of nature and its essential role within the lives of his characters, from the tragic to the comic. Baker-White contends that it is this centrality of nature—an ecological reciprocity, or lack thereof—that more than any other concern dominates the playwright’s life and work. Identifying four major tropes (“the lure of the sea, the dilemma of rural land, the search for a divine nature, and the appeal to exotic ecologies”) that help elucidate nature’s multifaceted presence in ...

           Before Revealed by Cynthia Gallant-Simpson (review)
    • Abstract: This novel tells two stories, one based on solid historical research and one based on pure speculation. The title’s “true legendary love triangle” is of course the O’Neill–Louise Bryant liaison of 1916–1918, carried on while Bryant was the lover and later the wife of John Reed. The book’s conjectural “secret never before revealed” is divulged in the prologue. Around the time O’Neill began his affair with Bryant, he also had a drunken one-night stand with a “pretty British girl” named Natalie who became pregnant with his child. A theater groupie and admirer of Provincetown’s “radical Greenwich Village crowd,” Natalie, sixteen, seduced O’Neill by convincing him that she was older. Sent to the country to stay with an ...

  • The Hairy Ape dir. by Richard Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Matthew Warchus, the new artistic director of London’s Old Vic Company, was consciously bold in deciding to present, in his first season, The Hairy Ape, a play he judged “a remarkable piece of writing which only turns up once in a lifetime.” The excited and largely positive response from press and audiences to “an extraordinary production of an extraordinary play” (The Stage) and “a rare and exhilarating revival” (The Guardian) justified his choice and demonstrated that, ninety-three years after its first production, O’Neill’s play, in the hands of an attentive director—in this case, Richard Jones—commands much more than historic interest.O’Neill and London theater have, indeed, done well for each other in recent ...

  • Ah, Wilderness! dir. by Casey Stangl (review)
    • Abstract: In his 1931 comedy Ah, Wilderness! (originally entitled Nostalgia), set during July 4–5, 1906, in small-town, middle-class America, Eugene O’Neill imagined a romantic young man’s struggle to forge his identity against a shifting social and political backdrop. The main protagonist, sixteen-year-old Richard Miller, enjoys life within the bosom of the Miller family, bathed in the warmth of summery love. Richard Miller’s penchant for romance is complicated by his flirtation with literature and socialism (indeed, O’Neill seems to be suggesting that the two are complementary). His coming-of-age rebellion includes both a sentimental devotion to one Muriel McComber, and a fondness for the writings of radicals like G. B. ... Read More

  • Ah, Wilderness! dir. by Greg Leaming (review)
    • Abstract: “Do less.” These words from director Greg Leaming guided Tom Harney in playing Richard Miller, Eugene O’Neill’s deferential-yet-raging rebel (and O’Neill avatar) in Ah, Wilderness! at Asolo Repertory Theatre. The comedy, set in “a large small-town in Connecticut” on July 4, 1906, is part of Asolo’s fourth season (of five) of its American Character Project—a theme chosen to stimulate thinking about “the multiple facets of American identity and difference,” according to Asolo program notes. Harney, a third-year MFA student in the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, said Leaming’s advice helped him concentrate on the elements of being an adolescent in 1906. “Do less” also describes Leaming’s minimalist ...

  • Long Day’s Journey Into Night dir. by Katherine Owens (review)
    • Abstract: Although the twenty-first century finds the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex richer in high-quality theater than your average Yankee might suppose, most of the better companies favor Shakespeare, Shakespeare, and Shakespeare or gritty plays of recent vintage. This arrangement might satisfy the likes of O’Neill’s James Tyrone (“we are such stuff as dreams are made on”) and his reactive son Edmund (“we are such stuff as manure is made on”), but plenty of us hereabouts would relish more frequent evidence of drama between, say, Bottom and Top Girls. Gratification has come from an unexpected source. Undermain Theatre, an edgy company named for its subterranean space on the periphery of downtown Dallas, has since 1984 ... Read More

  • Long Day’s Journey Into Night dir. by Katherine Owens (review)
    • Abstract: Not seen for twenty years in Dallas, Long Day’s Journey Into Night was given a superb production by the Undermain Theatre, led by its founding artistic director, Katherine Owens, and its executive producer, Bruce DuBose, who also played James Tyrone. Ms. Owens told me that she “went deep” into the Eugene O’Neill Review and got much help there in preparing her direction for the play. She informed the audience that we were seeing O’Neill’s masterpiece exactly sixty years to the day after its Swedish opening.As its name indicates, the theater is housed in the basement of a building at 3200 Main Street in Deep Ellum.1 Founded in 1984, and having earned a reputation for excellent productions, the theater seats eighty in ...

  • A Moon for the Misbegotten dir. by Ben Barnes (review)
    • Abstract: A Moon for the Misbegotten is infrequently produced in Europe. This is not a surprise, for the play is among O’Neill’s most challenging, both for players and audiences: it is long, wordy, and largely lacking in dramatic incident; it changes register quite markedly part way through; and, particularly in the shape of the role of Josie, it makes enormous demands on actors. Ben Barnes, former artistic director of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin (the Abbey of course was a great influence on O’Neill) and now director of the Theatre Royal in Waterford, Ireland, spoke in a post-show discussion, after the first preview, of the thrill of setting oneself and one’s team against these challenges, of testing one’s talent against ...

  • Hughie dir. by Michael Grandage (review)
    • Abstract: Hughie at the Booth Theater is a visually stunning Broadway revival of O’Neill’s late-career one-act, which the playwright intended as part of a series entitled By Way of Obit. Not without its flaws and often resorting to sentimentality, this production directed by Michael Grandage stresses optimism with mixed results. Yet it is successful in conveying how the obituary formula can become a storytelling vehicle, as memories and anecdotes transform the reality of death into an affirmation of life.When the house opens, actor Frank Wood is downstage, perched on a stool behind a hotel desk and staring vacantly through the fourth wall. For patrons sitting in the first few rows, the temptation to snap a cellphone pic ... Read More
