About This Show

Robert Falls directs Eugene O’Neill’s Desire Under the Elms, starring Brian Dennehy, Carla Gugino, and Pablo Schreiber.

Elder Ephraim Cabot returns to his remote New England farm with his third wife — the young, alluring, headstrong Abbie — setting his three disapproving grown sons on an emotional roller coaster and bitter fight for their inheritance. When Ephraim’s youngest son Eben sets his sights on Abbie, the resulting tempest brings tragic consequences.

Desire Under the Elms comes to Broadway directly from its critically acclaimed run at Chicago’s prestigious Goodman Theatre.
