Details of A Moon For The Misbegotten and the Ticket Luck value
Eugene O'Neill brings for us a beautiful play titled A Moon for the Misbegotten. It takes us back in 1923 - month is September. The script revolves around three characters: Josie, a dictatorial Irish woman with a sharp tongue and a poor reputation, her devious father, tenant farmer Phil Hogan, and James Tyrone Jr., Hogan's landlord and drinking mate, a sarcastic drunkard haunted by the death of his mother.
Jokingly, during their drinking session, Tyrone threatens to sell his land and evict Hogan, which impels the latter to set up a plan by using his daughter as his bait to get the big fish, Tyrone. The play can be considered as a prelude to Long Day's Journey into Night., with Jim Tyrone being an older version of Jamie Tyrone and both are based on Eugene O'Neill's older brother, Jamie O'Neill.
The play begins with Mike's - the last of Hogan's three sons, departure from the farm and ends with Jim Tyrone's exit from the farm, in order to die soon of alcoholic complications.
