"Hughie" by Eugene O'Neill is set in the lobby of a run-down Times Square hotel early one morning in the late 1920's. Its characters are the hotel's night clerk, and "Erie" Smith, a penny gambler who has spent his last fifteen years at the hotel between periods of drunkenness. After the death of the title character, who is the night clerk's predecessor, Erie babbles through tales of his life's imaginary successes, as well as his panicky optimism towards the futile future.
