Hudson Theatre Works presents Eugene O'Neill Festival In February


originally published: 01/24/2022

Hudson Theatre Works presents Eugene O

(WEEHAWKEN, NJ) -- Hudson Theatre Works presents a Eugene O'Neill Festival from February 9-27 featuring Desire Under the Elms and Hughie. All performances take place at Theatre at the Wilson School (80 Hauxhurst Avenue) in Weehawken, NJ. Desire will be performed Thursday through Saturday at 8:00pm and Sunday at 7:00pm. Hughie will be performed Wednesdays at 8:00pm, Saturday and Sunday at 3:00pm.  

Desire Under the Elms, Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece of erotic desire takes a Greek tragedy and sets it on an American Gothic farmstead. The son can see that his father’s new young wife plans to push him out. His passionate hatred for her is only matched by hers for him. Blinded by passion, they are set on a collision course.

Hughie, is about Erie, a high-rolling gambler at a single-occupancy hotel.  He and Hughie were confidants. Hughie admired Erie for his bold lifestyle and Erie considered Hughie his good luck charm. When Hughie dies unexpectedly, Erie's luck changes for the worse and he finds himself in dire straits. Then Erie meets the new night clerk who reminds him enough of Hughie that he takes the gamble that his luck is about to change.

Tickets are available at www.hudsontheatreworks.org. Festival Package: See both shows for $30 / Seniors & Students $20. Select your showtimes and the discounted rate will appear when you check out. They are requiring that all audience members wear masks and show proof of vaccination.  Reservations are strongly encouraged.
