On December 7, 1916—the year the Vagabonds Players was founded—the Vagabonds produced then-unknown future Pulitzer and Nobel-prize winning playwright Eugene O'Neill's short, one-act play, Bound East for Cardiff. The Vagabond Players paid O'Neill $15 for this script, and this was his first royalty ever as a playwright. O'Neill's play shared a bill with Strindberg's The Stranger and Maeterlinck's The Miracle of Saint Anthony.
Come and enjoy this dramatic piece of history.
