On a Connecticut tenant farm, on a barren patch of earth in 1923, two lost souls find hope under a lover's moon. In Eugene O'Neill's touching and heartbreaking play, Josie Hogan is a boisterous woman with a quick tongue and a tarnished reputation. It's been a hard and lonely life, working the Tyrone farm with her bullying father. When James Tyrone Jr.'s mother dies, he returns to the farm to settle the estate. One night, under the autumn moon, he opens his heart to Josie. Sparks fly and hope burns anew as two "misbegotten" people come together.
