The Web: One Act Play by Eugene O'Neill - Summary

Also Read

      In The Web, O’Neill drives us deeply into awareness of the plight of socially marginal people. It is O’Neill’s first fully developed one-act play soon after his release from a tuberculosis sanitarium. The subject and action of the play concern a tuberculosis prostitute and a thief who momentarily breaks the ensnaring structures of American class prejudice and circumstance that ultimately will destroy them both. O’Neill conveys in a moving way a sense of man’s unutterable loneliness, the hopelessness of struggle against fate.
