Eugene O’Neill was a Nobel Prize winner and one of the greatest American playwrights of all time. He also had the good fortune to be able to spend part of his life in Danville, California, where his home, the Tao House, is now a National Historic Site.
Every year, Danville honors the writer with the annual Eugene O’Neill Festival. This year the Festival will showcase two plays written in the 1920s that display very different sides of the playwright.
The first play, “Anna Christie,” will run from September 6 through 21, 2013, at the Village Theatre in downtown Danville. The second, “Chris Christophersen,” will be performed from September 26 to 29 in the barn at Tao House. Other events include a panel discussion held at Tao House, moderated by KQED’s Michael Krasny, and gala receptions, also at Tao House, on September 28 and 29.
The O’Neill Festival is one of many reasons why Danville is a great place for family fun and community activities.
