About the Show Less...

Kevin Spacey plays actor Jim Tyrone, drinking buddy of Phil Hogan and the man that exposes the softer side of Hogan's daughter Josie. Read More >

Josie lives with her father Phil in a tumble-down farmhouse. She is a towering woman whose reputation is in tatters, he is as sneaky as they come; together they seem to get by. Third rate actor Jim Tyrone is both Phil’s drinking buddy, and the man who exposes Josie’s softer side.

A Moon For The Misbegotten reunites the team of Kevin Spacey and Howard Davies, who previously found success with their award-winning production of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh.
