BOUND EAST FOR CARDIFF

by Eugene O'Neill

 

Two men speaking in a fog bound void, confessing to one another an unexpressed dream that has lain at the heart of their friendship. But their dream of leaving the sea is a betrayal. They are punished and forgiven when the sea sends her dying child a vision to comfort and mourn for him.

Written In 1914 at the beginning of his career, O'Neill spoke for the first time in his authentic voice, and as a depiction of human loneliness and need. It was a fitting introduction to the coming American theatre.
