All God's Chillun Got Wings
An expressionist play about a violently dysfunctional mixed-race marriage, inspired by an old Negro spiritual.
Ella is the neurotically jealous white wife of Jim, a driven, charismatic black man. She sabotages his career, effectively destroying him, before her frenzy lapses into remorseless dependency.
Eugene O'Neill's play All God's Chillun Got Wings was first performed in 1924, at the Provincetown Playhouse, New York, in a production starring Paul Robeson.
