A group of hard-drinking low-living companions sit in Harry Hope's downtown New York saloon awaiting the arrival of their  old comrade in booze, the salesman Hickey. Their expectations of this annual visitation will be rudely shattered when Hickey finally appears, intent on stripping his old buddies of their last hope - their dreams. Eugene O'Neill was the first US playwirght of major talent and the only one to win the Nobel prize for literature. The Iceman Cometh and Long Day's Journey Into Night are considered to be his masterpieces. This major theatrical event is directed by renowned American director Robert Falls and features a distinguished Irish cast headed by leading American actor Brian Dennehy in the role of Hickey.
