Synopsis

The first and only finished play in Eugene O'Neill's proposed 11-part "American history" cycle addresses the immigrant experience, focusing on the father-daughter conflict of a once-wealthy, still grandly mannered tavern-keeper outside Boston in 1828 and his headstrong offspring who aligns herself with a rich American.
