The life and work of the award-winning Irish-American playwright, Eugene O’Neill, will be celebrated in New Ross this October at the Eugene O’Neill International Festival of Theatre.
The life and work of the award-winning Irish-American playwright, Eugene O’Neill, will be celebrated in New Ross this October for the first time, as a sister to Danville, California's long-running Eugene O'Neill International Festival of Theatre.
The festival will open with a special screening of The Count of Monte Cristo accompanied by an illustrated talk on the relationship between James and his son Eugene, and a specifically created musical score by WIT music lecturer and performer Phil Collins.
Other highlights of the festival will include a staging of the play Hughie as directed by Eric Hayes of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation in California. There will also be a rare production of the play cycle Mourning Becomes Electra, and daily performances of The Glencairn Plays staged onboard the Dunbrody, a famine ship.
This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the work of this much celebrated legend of theatre whose work represents some of the best writing from the Irish diaspora.
