With unflinching theatrical force and explosive lyricism — and renowned British director Steven Berkoff at the helm — Eugene O’Neill’s “comedy of ancient and modern life” is a harrowing critique of class stratification. Robert “Yank” Smith, a brutish ship laborer who searches for a sense of belonging in a world controlled by the wealthy elite. As head coal stoker on an ocean liner, Yank is in his element: he rules his dark, smoky world. But when the pale, spoiled daughter of the ship's owner visits the engine room for a thrill, she is at once repulsed and terrified by Yank and what she sees there. Half in love with the unattainable and half blinded by rage, the bewildered Yank blunders violently through Manhattan seeking revenge and trying to understand where he fits in a world that refuses him.
