Summary

Lili Taylor (Aunt Dan and Lemon, Say Anything, "Six Feet Under"), Jena Malone (Doubt, Saved!) and Joseph Cross (Milk, Running with Scissors) portray the toxic mother/daughter/son triangle in the revival of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece. In this sizzling re-imagining of The Oresteia, three plays combine to create an epic 4-hour journey. At the end of the Civil War, General Mannon's wife and daughter await his return with very different agendas. When battle-scarred son Orin arrives, he finds his house divided.

A classic tragedy of Freudian proportions, Mourning Becomes Electra is a tale of adultery, obsession and madness. Three taut plays combine to create one epic theatrical journey as O'Neill's sizzling re-imagining of 'The Oresteia' brings the intense familial conflicts of this classic story to a tightly wound New England town. At the end of the Civil War, General Mannon's wife and daughter await his return with very different agendas. When his battle-scarred son Orin finally arrives, he finds a house divided and a tragedy in the making.
