Notes

We plunge into the season with O’Neill’s classic American tragedy based on the Oresteia. Desperate to free herself from her marriage and the clutches of the Mannon family curse, Christine takes a lover and murders her husband. Deeply wounded by her mother’s betrayal, young Lavinia crusades to reveal the truth and reclaim the family honor. She discovers her strength in beauty and revenge, striving for the unlikely place at the head of her family.
