06th December 2013 - 30th December 2013

Start times vary. Please see website.

Limited Tickets Available from £10, General Admission £45

Three one-act plays by Eugene O’Neill (The Web, Before Breakfast and The Dreamy Kid). The plays, written between 1913 and 1918, are being presented together for the first time. Ruth will act in The Web and Before Breakfast, directed by Sam Yates, and will make her directorial debut with The Dreamy Kid.

Hoxton Hall will be transformed into a New York tenement block in the pre-prohibition era, with exposed brickwork, iron fire escapes and el. Train tracks, juxtaposed alongside exquisitely detailed representations of the homes of O’Neill’s characters.

These intensely dramatic plays, with their themes of heaven and hell, of sin and redemption, will be followed by a night of hard liquor and live music at O’Neill’s very own New York watering hole, the Hell Hole Saloon.

BEFORE BREAKFAST

directed by Sam Yates

Mrs Rowland’s marriage to Alfred is reaching its bitter resolution. Once destined for great things, Alfred’s early promise as a poet has dwindled. Mrs Rowland’s struggle to support him reaches breaking point in this blackly comic work.

THE WEB

directed by Sam Yates

On a stormy night, Rose, a prostitute suffering with advanced consumption, argues violently with her pimp. A neighbour, Tim, decides that tonight is the night when enough is enough. A violent, passionate and romantic melodrama about two characters struggling to escape their past and imagine a brighter future.

THE DREAMY KID

directed by Ruth Wilson

As Mammy Saunders lies dying, her only wish is to see her grandson Abe, the Dreamy Kid, a young man drawn into gang violence, and on the run from the law for murder. A thrilling play about a family, faith and redemption.

Combining live music with totally immersive design, all housed in the intimate setting of Grade II listed Hoxton Hall, and for one short and exclusive run only, the event will begin with the three short plays, performed in the old music hall and featuring passionate tales of low-life, impoverished New York in the 1910s.

Performances are Wednesdays to Sundays inclusive between Saturday December 6th and Tuesday 31st December.
