EMINENT DOMAIN is about a worthy but eccentic professor and his wife, once a painter of great promise, now a reformed alcoholic who has retreated into a hermetic existance.  The story deals with their crisis as they appoach old age.  Further pressure is brough by the arrivial of a brilliant graduate student from Harvard who is writing a thesis on their son, an emerging poet who left home eight years ago and has not been heard from since.

"An engaging play about an academic whose career is threatened by a wife with no social or professional ambitions; a son who is a celebrated poet whose alienation from his parents accounts for part of his celebrity; several academic rivals whose own careers can be advanced by embarrassing him, and a freshman who make him aware of how little regard the students have for him despite his scholarly eminence." - Women's Wear Daily.

"Displays a genuine literate touch plus a concern for both intellectual and human values." - Christian Science Monitor.

"There is something engagingly civilized about the play. . . . Should not be missed by anyone anxious to watch the first major league steps of a playwright. Granger is a man of old fashioned promise, which might stand him in good stead in a new fashioned world." - N.Y. Post.

Eugene O'Neill's National Playwrights' Conference, 1977.
