Event Description

(Read about how massmouth represented at last month's SubText here. )

Your stories, real or imagined
Storytelling inspired by Eugene O’Neill’s enduring masterpiece

In partnership with massmouth A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN brings together two of Eugene O’Neill’s most memorable characters: Josie Hogan, the tough-talking daughter of an Irish immigrant farmer, and Jim Tyrone, first introduced in LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT.

Uniquely funny and poignant, A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN illuminates a search for redemption through an unlikely and magnificent love story. Share your own story on the evening’s theme at these pre-show storytelling events!

Anyone can come to hear stories and buy a drink ( wine, beer, coffee, tea) while they listen at the Central Sq. theater lobby
