Desire Under The Elms:
Inspired by the Greek Tragedy, Hippoylatus, set in period New England, Eugene O’Neill’
acclaimed masterpiece stage play opens at Chapel off Chapel for an Australian Premiere . A
fiercely energetic drama of Oedipal lust and yearning involving a rebellious farm boy, his
tyrannical father, and the father’s slatternly new wife.
Owner of a farm plantation. Strong but worn man.
Cabot is old. Owner of a farm plantation. However, strong and gaut, great-concentrated
power, but stoop shouldered from toil. His face is as hard as if it were hewn out of a boulder,
yet there is a weakness in it, a petty pride in its own narrow strength. His eyes blinking
continually in effort to focus on subjects, their stare having a straining ingrowing quality.
Father of three males.
Males, aged 35 to 70 from Victoria, Australia
