Eugene O’Neill Play Opens at Fitzpatrick
The Pulitzer Prize-Winning play ‘Anna Christie’ opens on the Fitzpatrick Main Stage August 24. Preview performances begin on August 20; the production closes August 31.
“It’s an extremely gripping and suspenseful story, very human and gritty,” says Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning director, David Auburn. “The sexual politics are surprisingly modern, radical even. The play still has the capacity to shock. That’s pretty remarkable 90 years on.” Anna Christie is a young woman abandoned by her father and forced into a life of hardship. When the two are finally reunited, Anna must learn to forgive her father’s past transgressions. ‘Anna Christie’ is a beautiful and poignant tale of love and forgiveness.
The cast includes: Rebecca Brooksher as Anna Christopherson, Alison Fraser as Marthy Owen, Jonathan Hogan as Chris Christopherson, Derek Wilson as Mat Burke, and Walton Wilson as Larry.
