Here's how Goodman bills the classic by Pulitzer Prize winner and Nobel laureate O'Neill: "In The Iceman Cometh, Harry Hope's saloon is home to a ragtag band of drunks and dreamers who celebrate the arrival of Hickey, the charismatic traveling salesman whose raucous presence always ensures a grand good time. But when a newly sober Hickey blows in with a renewed outlook on life, his zealous attempts to fix the lives of his old friends leads to a series of events that are at once devastatingly comic and heartbreaking — and a revelation that threatens to shatter the tenuous illusions that fuel their lives."
O'Neill, the father of modern American drama, wrote Ah! Wilderness!, Anna Christie, Long Day's Journey Into Night, A Moon for the Misbegotten, Desire Under the Elms, Beyond the Horizon, Strange Interlude, Hughie, A Touch of the Poet and more.
