EgoPo and Drexel University Special Presentation

Desire Under the Elms

By Eugene O'Neill
Created and performed by Abrahamse and Meyer Productions, Cape Town South Africa

ONE WEEK ONLY: October 4-7

Eugene O'Neill’s powerful classic re-set in colonial Cape Town has won critical acclaim in South Africa for its lyric beauty and boldness. O’Neill’s 1924 tragedy about a stepson in love with his stepmother is reimagined in rural South Africa, where a British farmer brings home a Xhosa bride. This emotionally potent cast creates a smoldering drama, leaving audiences breathless. Made possible with support from Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and their Performing Arts Department as part of their Rankin Scholars in Residence program. Venue: Mandell Theater, Drexel University 3220 Chestnut St, Philadelphia
