Abstract

Created from the memoirs of the famous Venetian traveller and merchant of the 18th century Marco Polo, the play “Marco Millions” by the American playwright Eugene O'Neill represents its own philosophical parable where the action takes place, primarily, in medieval China. The Theatre Guild, the best American theatre of the 1920s, staged the play's premier in 1928. The director was Rouben Mamoulian, an immigrant from Russia. The play served as the beginning of creative cooperation for the theatre with the “first American playwright.” The introduction to the play “Macro Millions” allowed the Theatre Guild to develop bright and expressive scenery in the Chinese style (stage-designer Lee Simonson), and to depict the history of tragic relations between European (read: American) mercantilism and Chinese spirituality.
