Long Day’s Journey into Night

September 3–15, 2013
Union Station’s H&R Block City Stage
2 hr. 45 min. (including intermission)

by Eugene O’Neill
Directed by John Rensenhouse
Honoring the 125th birth anniversary of Eugene O’Neill.

One of the most admired plays of the 20th century, this is the widely acknowledged masterwork from America’s leading dramatist. A loving, autobiographical account of the haunted Tyrone family, a family in which almost every family can see itself reflected, this moving play explores the hope of family love as it attempts to heal the wounds of marriage, of parenthood, and of sonship with a force that will never be forgotten.

Picnic

August 6–25, 2013
Union Station’s H&R Block City Stage

by William Inge
Directed by Mark Robbins
Honoring William Inge’s 100th birth anniversary in Independence, KS.

Runtime: approx. 2 hours 15 minutes with 2 intermissions

A charming, uplifting and heartbreaking story of one life-changing day in the lives of two households in a small Kansas town in the early 1950s. Madge is coming of age and wonders if there is more to life than being a pretty girl destined to marry the first acceptable man who asks. Then Hal arrives in town, and his presence has a seismic effect on Madge and other members of the Owens’ extended family. Hal sees a chance for an emotional attachment more deep and real than any in his shirtless life up to this point.

 A whirlwind of passion and longing, makes this a summer picnic like no other.
