The Hairy Ape by is a 1922 expressionist play by American playwright Eugene O’Neill. It centers around a beastly laborer known as Yank who searches for a sense of belonging in a world controlled by the rich.
The classic O’Neill play presents a layered investigation of identity by an alienating society, class struggle, and reach for upward mobility. It serves as a spiritual search for ones soul in a rapidly-industrialized and oppressively technological world.
A visual art exhibit will be curated by BLNKA, a nonprofit visual arts organization in Lubbock, Texas, that will compliment the play. This play and visual art exhibit will be presented at Grace Campus and all ticket sales will benefit Grace Campus.
