Eugene O’Neil Festival
September 12 - September 27
Eugene O’Neill’s quest to become a playwright started as a young man recovering from a life-threatening illness and ended at the top of a winding and hilly road in Danville, California. Tao House, the “final home and harbor” nestled in the Danville hills, is where O’Neill wrote his most celebrated and deeply personal plays. In 2020, the Eugene O’Neill Foundation, Tao House will retrace the playwright’s steps from nascent writer to his journey’s end as America’s first great playwright, with productions of his earliest plays and his last play, the masterpiece, A Moon for the Misbegotten. O’Neill’s searching nature guaranteed that his artistic path would be one of many twists and turns and we hope you will join us to see what is around each bend.
