In this take on Aeschylus' The Oresteia, O'Neill substitutes the New England House of Mannon for the House of Atreus and concocts a typically over-the-top cocktail of sex, envy, adultery, matricide and inescapable guilt * Chicago Tribune * There is a manifest integrity about his work, a ruthless self-exposure, and a determination to venture into territory where few dramatists dare to tread * Daily Telegraph * The full range of the human and the divine is called into play * Independent * Historically important... Theater of great scope and grand design * New York Times *
