"Nothing matters anymore. Only the moon and its dreams."
Two lost people and one of the most beautiful and unusual love scenes in world literature are at the center of Eugene O'Neill's emotional drama. The play begins on an early September day and ends with the sunrise of the next. James Tyrone Jr, fleeing the demons of the past, drowning pain and guilt in copious amounts of alcohol, is stranded that one night with the farmer's daughter Josie. Although they have known each other for a long time, it could be exactly this encounter that finally gives both their lives a new, a happy turn. But the closer they get, the further they drift from the possibility of a future together. Eugene O'Neill, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and four times Pulitzer Prize, is one of the most famous American playwrights. Again and again, he devotes himself to broken figures,
failures, their flight into self-deception and alcohol, the unsparing look into human abysses. Among his best-known works is A Long Day's Journey into Night from 1941, in which he wrote himself into the character of Edmund - and his older brother Jamie, alias James Tyrone Jr. The play was not published until 1956, three years after his death.
different with Ein Mond für die Beladenen (A Moon for the Loaded), with which he once again made his brother the protagonist of one of his dramas in 1947.
