Hairy Ape, The and All God's Chillun Got Wings  

Hairy Ape, The and All God's Chillun Got Wings $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST
Two strong expressionist plays from early in O'Neill's career. 

The Hairy Ape (1922) 
The first tells of an animalistic stoker, symbolically named Yank, who, spurned by a society woman, breaks out of the engine room and goes in search of himself in the 'real' world. 

Review
'A bitter, brutal, wildly fantastic play of nightmare hue and nightmare distortion . '  New York Times 

All God's Chillun Got Wings (1924) 
The second deals with a mixed marriage, in which the neurotically jealous white wife destroys her black husband's chances of a career before going berserk and lapsing into a remorseless dependency on him.
