Paige Caswell

More Stately Mansions by Eugene O'Neill | A sequel to A Touch of the Poet, it picks up four years later in 1832 Massachusetts, with Simon Harford, now married to Sara Melody, finding himself the pawn in a battle between his wife and his mother to control him through love. Played out against the background of an industrial revolution, the struggle ultimately leads to tragedy and despair. The title of the play was derived from the line... Read More →
