Three short plays by Eugene O'Neill are revived at the historic Hoxton Hall starring Ruth Wilson
Opened 6 Dec 2013
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Combining live music with totally immersive design, all housed in the intimate setting of Grade II listed Hoxton Hall, and for one short and exclusive run only, the event will begin with the three short plays, performed in the old music hall and featuring passionate tales of low-life, impoverished New York in the 1910s. These intensely dramatic plays, with their themes of heaven and hell, of sin and redemption, will be followed by a night of hard liquor and live music at O'Neill's very own New York watering hole, the Hell Hole Saloon. As the elevated train rattles its way into the wintry night, the audience will make their own way through the space, on an intoxicating journey that will live long in the memory - and will leave them wanting to party late into the night...
The plays, written between 1913 and 1918, are being presented together for the first time. Ruth Wilson will act in The Web and Before Breakfast, directed by Sam Yates, and will make her directorial debut with The Dreamy Kid.
