Balagula Theatre: ‘E.G.O.: The Passions of Eugene Gladstone O’Neill’ at Natasha’s

Season 13-14 Poster_0

“In the words of American playwright, television writer and activist Kia Corthron, who selected E.G.O. from over 170 submissions from US, Canada, Italy, France and Russia and endorsed it: ‘Many theatergoers are familiar with the work of legendary playwright Eugene O’Neill and his barrier-breaking political and aesthetic achievements. His final contribution, the breathtaking, posthumously produced ‘Long Day’s Journey into Night,’ depicts his harrowing young adulthood within a family racked by addiction. Morello’s E.G.O. picks up the journey, now placing an older and aging O’Neill in the spotlight by focusing on his two very different wives – one a writer in her own right who subjugates her own career for that of her husband, a decision she comes to rue; the other an actress who also sacrifices her career, a woman with goals and the fierce determination to realize them. Intermittently witty and chilling, Morello adeptly chronicles O’Neill’s twice-over matrimonial deterioration in all its agonizing reality, coupled with the familial addictions that continued to haunt him for the rest of his life.”
