Strange interlude : a play by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

111 editions published between 1927 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot centers on Nina Leeds, the daughter of an Ivy League professor, who is devastated when her adored fiancé is killed in World War I, before they have a chance to consummate their passion. Ignoring the unconditional love of the novelist Charles Marsden, Nina embarks on a series of sordid affairs before determining to marry an amiable fool, Sam Evans. While Nina is pregnant with Sam's child, she learns a horrifying secret known only to Sam's mother: insanity runs in the Evans family and could be inherited by any child of Sam's. Realizing that a child is essential to her own and to Sam's happiness, Nina decides on a "scientific" solution. She will abort Sam's child and conceive a child with the physician Ned Darrell, letting Sam believe that it is his. The plan backfires when Nina and Ned's intimacy leads to their falling passionately in love. Twenty years later, Sam's "son" Gordon Evans is approaching manhood, with only Nina and Ned aware of the boy's true parentage. The meaning of the title is suggested by the aging Nina in a speech near the end of the play: "Our lives are strange dark interludes in the electrical display of God the Father!"

Exorcism : a play in one act by Eugene O'Neill( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly after the debut of Exorcism in 1920, Eugene O'Neill suddenly canceled production and ordered all extant copies of the drama destroyed. For over ninety years, it was believed that the play was irrevocably lost, until it was recently discovered that O'Neill's second wife had in fact retained a copy, which she later gave to the prolific screenwriter and producer Philip Yordan. In early 2011, Yordan's widow discovered the typescript of Exorcism--complete with edits in O'Neill's own hand--in her late husband's vast trove of papers. The discovery and publication of Exorcism, a relatively early play in the O'Neill corpus, furthers our knowledge of O'Neill's dramatic development and reveals a pivotal point in the career of this great American playwright."--Publisher description

Ah, wilderness! by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

71 editions published between 1933 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comedy in four acts by Eugene O'Neill, published and first performed in 1933. Perhaps the most atypical of the author's works, the play presents a sentimental tale of youthful indiscretion in a turn-of-the-century New England town. Richard, adolescent son of the local newspaper publisher, Nat Miller, exhibits the wayward tendencies of his maternal uncle, Sid Davis. Forbidden to court the neighbor girl, Muriel, by her father, Richard goes on a bender and falls under the influence of Belle, whom he tries to impress but whose worldly ways frighten him. It is the dissolute Sid who handles the situation upon the prodigal's drunken return, and with the aid of warmhearted Nat and the forgiving Muriel everything is put to right
Nine plays by Eugene O'Neill by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

19 editions published between 1930 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The settings range from a native-ruled island in the west Indies to a university town in New England, but the theme is universal--the eternal tragedy of man caught in passionate conflict between aspiration and frustration. O'Neill's plays explore man's continuing need to give the conflict of his life some meaning beyond itself, to find some justification for the importance which it has for him; the plays themselves are efforts to achieve a self-justifying dignity and grandeur
Anna Christie : a play in four acts by Eugene O'Neill( )

15 editions published between 1921 and 2014 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the New York docks, and on board a coastal barge, this play tells the harrowing tale of Anna Christie, sent away as a child by her father, the barge captain. When she returns as a grown woman, she has secrets she can't bear to tell either her father or the man who wants to marry her
