News   PHOTO CALL: Falls and Dennehy Ready Desire Under the Elms for Goodman
 
Director Robert Falls and Tony-winning actor Brian Dennehy reteam for the upcoming Goodman Theatre production of Eugene O'Neill's Desire Under the Elms.

In addition to Dennehy, the cast also includes Carla Gugino, Pablo Schreiber, Boris McGiver and Daniel Stewart Sherman.

In the haunting O'Neill drama, "Elder Ephraim Cabot returns to his remote New England farm with his third wife — the young, alluring, headstrong Abbie — setting his three disapproving grown sons on an emotional rollercoaster and bitter fight for their inheritance," according to show notes. "When Ephraim's youngest son Eben sets his sights on Abbie, the resulting tempest brings tragic consequences."

The Jan. 17-Feb. 22, 2009, staging in Chicago marks Falls and Dennehy's fifth collaboration on O'Neill's work over two decades.

Here is a look at the production in rehearsal:
