It’s a play within a play. Or really it is a play about a playwright. And Give Us The Shadows, playing for the first time in the U.S,  is Lars Norén’s imagining of the famed playwright Eugene O’Neill’s life. Eugene O’Neill is an american four time pulitzer prize winning playwright who wrote many acclaimed plays in the early 20th century. Like a pre-Hemingway in terms of personal life, O’Neill had a rocky life with three wives and a dark outlook that is reflected in his character’s tragedy and pessimism. Renowned Swedish playwright Lars Norén was inspired by O’Neill and they shared a love of realism in their plays. And Give Us the Shadows is a dark fictitious imagining of the meeting of O’Neill’s sons and their dysfunctional family. The play runs Thursday and Friday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm.
