Blind Alley Guy: Notes for an Unfinished Play by Eugene ONeill
A sociopathic gangster goes to the electric chair in the last play Eugene O'Neill ever attempted (and failed) to write. Exactly two months after completing what would come to be considered his masterpiece, Long Day's Journey into Night, Eugene O'Neill conceived of a new Drama about a gangster sentenced to death in the electric chair. For two years he developed this idea, drafting pages of handwritten notes. By then it was 1943 and O'Neill, at 55 years old, was beset by tremors in his hand so terrible he couldn't even hold a pencil. He abandoned writing in June of that year, ten years before his death. Blind Alley Guy would be the last play he would ever attempt. Blind Alley Guy: Notes for Unfinished Play by Eugene O'Neill is highly physical, mashing clowning in the manner of Chaplin with the brooding tragic style of O'Neill's great work. Trapped in a cycle of varying edits and re-writes, the White Family is portrayed as frantic puppets of an unseen and obviously uncertain creator, hystErically reenacting moments of their story as they hurtle in no particular direction toward utter devastation.
by Eugene O'Neill; Arranged by Kevin Mullins. Conceived And Directed By: Joshua William Gelb
