Eugene O’Neill created some of the American theatre’s most memorable female characters including Mary Tyrone, Josie Hogan, Nina Leeds, and Anna Christophersen. It is the last of these, Anna Christophersen, better known as “Anna Christie,” that will be the center of this year’s festival. Feeling controlled by her father and fiance, Anna stops them in their tracks and has her say. Anna’s declaration that she is the master of her own destiny ushered in a new appreciation of the female voice in the American theatre. This year’s festival will focus on a variety of female voices.
