About This Show

The New Group presents Eugene O’Neill’s trilogy, Mourning Becomes Electra, directed by Scott Elliott.

Three taut plays combine to create one epic theatrical journey as O’Neill’s sizzling re-imagining of the Oresteia brings the intense familial conflicts of this classic story to a tightly wound New England town.

At the end of the Civil War, General Mannon’s wife and daughter await his return with very different agendas. When his battle-scarred son Orin finally arrives, he finds a house divided and a tragedy in the making.
