Eugene O'Neill's enduring master work, Anna Christie, is a surprisingly contemporary play that still crackles with fierce physicality, humor and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain (Lyric Stage favorite Johnny Lee Davenport) is reunited with the daughter he unwittingly abandoned to a life of hardship. It seems like Anna has found love with a shipwrecked sailor, only to be rejected by both of the men in her life when her dark past is revealed. As both her father and her suitor come to recognize their own responsibility for her plight, all three of them struggle to find forgiveness and redemption in each other. Following his acclaimed production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Scott Edmiston takes a fresh look at one of America's greatest playwrights.
