Abortion

by Eugene O'Neill

17 ratings, 9 reviews

Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) was an American playwright who won the Nobel prize in Literature and a number of pulitzers for his plays, which were among the first to bring the realism associated with European drama to the American Theater. He was one of the first to use American slang and to depict lower class people in his plays, which are generally pretty dark and depressive.

Abortion is one of his one act plays, and it features:

JACK TOWNSEND
JOHN TOWNSEND, his father
MRS. TOWNSEND, his mother
LUCY TOWNSEND, his sister
EVELYN SANDS, his fiancee
DONALD (BULL) HERRON, his room-mate
JOE MURRAY, a machinist
STUDENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY

The action takes place in the study of Townsend and Herron's suite in the dorm of a large eastern university. It's a quick read for the subway if you're looking for some doom and gloom.
