'If I could, in my dyin' hour, I'd set it afire an' watch it burn...' Ephraim Cabot's sons work from morning till night, believing his farm will one day be theirs. But everything changes when the old man returns from town with a new wife. This haunting and erotic tragedy is one of the great American plays from Nobel Prize-winning playwright Eugene O'Neill.
