About the show

Irish Rep presents O’Neill’s tragic tale about an immigrant’s experience and generational aspiration, the first work written for the playwright’s famously unfinished cycle about societal ambition and the American dream. More…

From the show:

Proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family’s humble Irish origins. When his daughter, Sara, falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con’s pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World.
