Theatre Royal Productions Waterford presents A Moon for the Misbegotten in association with Geva Theatre Rochester, United States. The production is a twin city business and culture initiative conceived as an Irish-American partnership with actors and creative team from both countries to celebrate the great Irish-American dramatist, Eugene O’ Neill.
Set in a dilapidated Connecticut house in early September 1923, A Moon for the Misbegotten focuses on three characters: Josie, a domineering Irish woman with a quick tongue and a ruined reputation, her conniving father, tenant farmer Phil Hogan, and James Tyrone, Hogan's landlord and drinking companion, a cynical alcoholic haunted by the death of his mother.
Theatre Royal Productions is the producing arm of the Theatre Royal Waterford. The company is committed to producing and touring high quality theatre productions from the Irish and international repertoire.
The production of A Moon for the Misbegotten will be financially supported by the business community in both cities and this initiative will also have an educational element with the involvement of both WIT and John Fisher in Rochester.
