Event Details

The world of the superior, confident Yank, a brute of a coal shoveler aboard a steamliner, is shaken when he meets Mildred, the well-intentioned daughter of a rich steel magnate. Seeking to prove his place in the world, Yank squares off against a society where men are replaced by machines and separated by class. How does the worth of a single person measure up against the prosperity of a society? This expressionist masterpiece, by the Nobel-prize winning author of Long Day’s Journey Into Night and The Iceman Cometh, chronicles the journey of individualism in the age of the assembly line.

The Hairy Ape plays for one weekend, August 2-4, 2018; Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 pm, Saturday afternoon at 2:00 pm at the Kerrytown Concert House.
