Mourning Becomes Electra
At the end of the Civil War, General Mannon’s wife and daughter await his return with very different agendas. When battle-scarred son Orin arrives, he finds his house divided. A classic tragedy of Freudian proportions, Mourning Becomes Electra is a tale of adultery, obsession and madness. Lili Taylor, Jena Malone and Joseph Cross portray the toxic mother/daughter/son triangle in the revival of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece. In this sizzling re-imagining of The Oresteia, three plays combine to create an epic 4-hour journey.
