The UNSEEN O’NEILL LAB presents productions of some of Eugene O’Neill’s known but rarely-seen works including Beyond the Horizon, Dynamo, and The Great God Brown. The Lab will also feature a production of Marco Millions created in collaboration with the Center for the Humanities’ Translation Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research at the CUNY Graduate Center. In addition to a special work-in-progress showing of Mourning Becomes Electra directed by David Herskovits, and a Military Veteran Theater-Making Workshop with Maurice Decaul.

December 1 – 17 2016 at The Brick

Beyond the Horizon
by Eugene O’Neill
Lead Artist: Ann Marie Dorr
O’Neill’s horribly well-made, Pulitzer Prize-winning, starry-eyed, naive tragedy with New England home cooking, two brothers, one girl named Ruth, a farm, and whatever the hell is beyond…beyond…beyond the horizon?

by Eugene O’Neill
Lead Artist: Kathleen Kennedy Tobin
A play about taking Technology as your God, and breaking your mother’s heart.

Durned Queer
by Eugene O’Neill
Lead Artist: David Herskovits
Our selection of in-progress work on Mourning Becomes Electra drills into the murky contradictions of an all-American tribe.

Marco Millions (in collaboration with the Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center)
by Eugene O’Neill
Lead Artists: Claire Moodey and Bess Rowen
Come enter a world where Marco Polo can now speak Hindi, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and English — this is still the story of Marco Polo, but it is also the story of the cast’s interpretation of this obscure O’Neill play.

The Great God Brown
by Eugene O’Neill
Lead Artist: Eva von Schweinitz
Dion loves Margaret who only loves him when he’s wearing masquerade. Add a jealous best friend and a prostitute savant to a mix of exuberant exclamations and existential punchlines, and soon questions about truth, failure, and identity arise.

Military Veteran Theater Making Workshop
Led by TMT and Maurice DeCaul
Through conversation, writing, and movement we will explore the themes of Eugene O’Neill’s work which will culminate in a small presentation at the end of the day.
