** spoiler alert ** Anna Christie grew up away from her family with distant cousins on a farm in Minnesota. After an illness, she returns to the sea to see the father she hasn't seen since her childhood. She wants to let him know the idyllic childhood in Minnesota that he envisioned for her wasn't the reality. In truth, she grew up as little more than a slave for these cousins and was ultimately abused leading her down a less than desirable life path. With all of this baggage, how much will Anna reveal to her father and the man who she has fallen for?

This one ties up a little too nicely at the end for me. I almost thought it was over at the end of Act II - and maybe would have been a little more thought provoking if that was the truth.
