News   Lucas' Singing Forest, O'Neill's Misbegotten May Play Long Wharf Stage in 2004-05
 
Long Wharf Theatre is preparing the upcoming 2004-2005 season lineup which will mark the regional company's 40th anniversary at its New Haven, Connecticut home.

Among the productions expected to hit the stage are Craig Lucas' The Singing Forest and Eugene O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten. Other possibilities include Tom Stoppard's Travesties, Molière's The Misanthrope and William Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Lucas' The Singing Forest — which is slated to make its world premiere at Seattle's Intiman Theatre — is an epic play, which interweaves the tales of three generations of one family, from New York in 2000 to Vienna in the 1930s.

O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten was last seen on Broadway in a 2000 revival starring Gabriel Byrne, Cherry Jones and Roy Dotrice. The work, set in a Connecticut farmhouse in early September 1923, centers around the struggles of the strong, sturdy woman with her never-do-well father and weak-willed, dissolute, would-be beau.

Long Wharf Theatre currently present Nobel Laureate Dario Fo's We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay! on its mainstage through April 4 and Tracey Scott Wilson's The Story on Stage II through March 14.
