Lazarus Laughed

Written by American master Eugene O’Neill in 1925, this “Play for Imaginative Theatre” was and is one of the playwright’s most innovative and unusual plays. While O’Neill is better known for THE ICEMAN COMETH and LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, LAZARUS LAUGHED is a powerful exploration of the events following the raising of Lazarus from the dead by Jesus, and the lives that this extraordinary event touched. The play moves from Bethany, to Athens, to the emperor Tiberius’ palace in Rome. It invites the audience to question their own faith and the strength of conviction in the face of tyranny and doubt. Directed by Alaina Manchester.
