"The Hairy Ape" by Eugene O'Neill

The Hairy Ape

In a new School of Drama tradition, fourth-year student Rey Zane directs O’Neill’s expressionistic study of class conflict and the search for belonging ‒ themes that still resonate almost 100 years after the play’s premiere. Starting as a leader among the firemen who stoke coal on a trans-Atlantic cruise ship, Robert “Yank” Smith clashes with an upper-class passenger, sending him on a devastating journey that ends with him questioning his very humanity.

Directed by Rey Zane '19
