A Creekside Staging of "Anna Christie"

Eugene O'Neill was amongst the first playwrights to disrupt staid American theater with techniques of realism, one of which was to incorporate societal outcasts as key roles in his plays. When it premiered on Broadway in 1921, "Anna Christie" made waves. The four-act play follows a young prostitute as she reconnects with her estranged, seafaring father and fights to determine her own fate and achieve redemption through honest love. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play is mostly set aboard a barge, leading director Bruce Grund chose to stage his modern adaptation at the Certified Marina in Connelly, just nine feet from the Rondout Creek. "O'Neill is a master of conflict, akin to the ancient Greek tragedians," says Grund, who chose this play to further the local #MeToo dialogue. "In 'Anna Christie,' the conflicts erupt, interrupt, and rupture the emotions of both cast and audience." The performances will be followed by Q&A sessions with the cast and director. "Anna Christie" runs September 7-23 at Certified Marina. Tickets are $25, $20 for students. Cash or check. (845) 473-4397.
