Set in New England just after the end of the Civil War, Mourning Becomes Electra is O'Neill's three part reworking of themes from Greek tragedy. This adaptation of Aeschylus' Oresteia by one of America's greatest playwrights is a landmark in the history of theatre.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Historically important... Theater of great scope and grand design" * New York Times *
"The full range of the human and the divine is called into play" * Independent *
"There is a manifest integrity about his work, a ruthless self-exposure, and a determination to venture into territory where few dramatists dare to tread" * Daily Telegraph *
"In this take on Aeschylus' The Oresteia, O'Neill substitutes the New England House of Mannon for the House of Atreus and concocts a typically over-the-top cocktail of sex, envy, adultery, matricide and inescapable guilt" * Chicago Tribune *
