Editor reviews

Eugene O'Neill's 1922 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama (his second of four Pulitzers) may seem, with its slangy dialects, a shade unsubtle to readers today. But listeners probably won't notice, thanks to this excellent, nuanced production. Stacy Keach emphasizes the likable, vulnerable side of a Swedish coal-barge captain reunited after 15 years with his daughter. Keach prevents the father from descending into caricature. Alison Elliot also avoids the stereotype inherent in her part as his man-hating prostitute daughter, and Dwier Brown conveys both innocence and scorn as a young Irish seaman. Atmospheric sound effects are laid in subtly. A saloon-and-sea drama, this early O'Neill triumph has deservedly found a rich, new life.

Summary

The passion of a coal barge captain's daughter and a handsome sailor takes a tumultuous turn when secrets from her past are revealed. Nobel Laureate Eugene O'Neill won the second of his four Pulitzer Prizes for this heroic classic.
