by Eugene O'Neill
Set to sea.
A coal barge captain spends his days at a dingy waterfront saloon, cursing the old devil sea. A letter arrives from his long lost daughter announcing she is coming to see him. She’s a stranger to the sea, but has devils of her own. She sets to sail with her father searching for a family she has never known. When they rescue a powerful, rough sailor, she falls in love. But as they journey on, her past secrets threaten her hope for a new life. The first great American play by America’s only Nobel Prize winning playwright is an astonishing love story played out against the tempestuous sea.

This beautiful interplay has us wondering until the very end if we are in for a tragic or uplifting story.
