Performance Dates

The Shakespeare Theatre Company is proud to announce that Emmy Award-winning actor, Richard Schiff, (The West Wing) will play the title role in Eugene O’Neill’s powerfully focused play, Hughie. One of O’Neill’s later works, Hughie is a commanding study of Erie Smith, a man whose illusions of a grand lifestyle are wavering after the death of the stranger who quietly validated his larger-than-life confidence. Erie is searching for a new person to affirm his transparent fantasies or else be forced to face his own crushing self-pity. Hughie stands to transfix its audience with the raw force wrought by one of O’Neill’s most stirring characters.
