On Thursday, November 7th from 6:00pm – 7:30pm discover the life and work of Eugene O'Neill.
American Playwright and Nobel laureate in literature, O’Neill brought a darker side to the theatre; a more introspective view of the human soul. Creating such works as A Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Desire Under the Elms, Strange Interlude and more, O’Neill is highly recognizable and as interesting a man as the characters he created.
