John Loving’s life is in crisis and he is trying to cope with it through the act of writing a book about it. The end of the story is the battleground over which the multiple sides of his personality fight. Days Without End is a fascinating look at the parallel emotional crises of an artist and his life and the interaction and blurring of the lines between. Known as O’Neill’s final theatrical experiment, Days features two actors playing one man simultaneously throughout the play. This is a rare chance to see a play lost to time that touches on the timely topic of creating and controlling one’s narrative.
