Comedians Theatre Company presents this rare one-act play which illustrates how our lives are shaped by the people we meet.

Originally produced on Broadway, revived to sellout houses in 1996 starring Al Pacino, Hughie was one of Eugene O’Neill’s last works. Initially intended as part of a series of short plays entitled By Way of Obit, it became the lone survivor when O’Neill destroyed the others. Starring Mike McShane (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and Phil Nichol (Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner).
