Past Event
Burning with the dramatic fire of irreconcilable passions and conflicting dreams, this rarely produced masterpiece is set in a tawdry tavern near Boston on the eve of Andrew Jackson’s election.

The play, which the New York Times dubbed “electric,” unleashes volcanic forces in a thrilling, unexpected climax.
