Summary
Theatrical sparks flew when veteran O'Neill interpreters Jason Robards Jr. and Colleen Dewhurst joined forces in the celebrated 1973 revival of Eugene O'Neill's tender semiautobiographical drama. Under the inspired direction of José Quintero, they helped transform the neglected 1947 work into a now-recognized modern masterpiece. In a towering performance, the late, great Jason Robards portrays a cynical, self-hating alcoholic actor based on O'Neill's elder brother, Jamie. The majestic Colleen Dewhurst plays the earthy, gruff daughter of his scheming Irish tenant farmer (Ed Flanders) with whom the failed actor spends a soul-baring night of guilt-ridden confessions, tenderness, and absolution. Both Dewhurst and Flanders won Tony Awards for their performances.
