Hughie – one of the plays written by Eugene O’Neill while living at Tao House -- is a one-act play set in the lobby of a small hotel on New York’s West Side during the summer of 1928.
Small time hustler named Erie Smith spends the late evening with the hotel’s new night clerk, Charlie Hughes, and laments how Smith’s luck has gone bad since the death of Hughie, Hughes predecessor.
Written in 1942, this gem of a play was not produced on Broadway until 1964 starring Jason Robards, and directed by Jose Quintero.
The staged reading of Hughie will feature Aaron Murphy, who played Hickey in the recent O’Neill Festival’s sold-out run of The Iceman Cometh. If you couldn’t get tickets for Iceman in September, you’ll want to attend this dynamic short play. It promises to charm playgoers during the limited run of one of O’Neill’s prized Tao House plays in January.
