Photo Flash: First Look at DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS at Firehouse Theatre
Firehouse Theatre presents Noble prize-winning American playwright Eugene O'Neill's powerful tale of love, lust, and loathing -- DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS -- from tonight, October 20, through November 5, 2017. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
O'Neill's 1924 masterpiece is rooted in the tragic Greek myth Phaedra, transplanted to a remote New England farm. When Ephraim Cabot comes home with a new, young wife his three sons plot to maintain their hold on him and their inheritance, leading to malice, madness, and murder.
"I'm so thrilled Firehouse has chosen to produce this haunting drama," says director Josh Chenard. "O'Neill's text is so dramatic and so beautiful, finding that balance between theatricality and the truth of human experience is a wonderful challenge...and I certainly have an incredible group of actors and a top-notch creative team to explore with."
Performances of DESIRE UNDER THE ELMS are at the Firehouse Theatre, 1609 West Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia, 23220. Tickets range from $15 - $30 and can be purchased online at www.firehousetheatre.org.
