2014 International Eugene O’Neill Conference comes home to New London, Connecticut

This year’s International Eugene O’Neill Conference, Eugene O’Neill: Hunted, Haunted, Home, is getting the band back together and going straight to the source: New London, Connecticut, the location of the O’Neill family summer cottage and setting for several of his plays.

This is the first time the conference has taken place in New London. A production of The Eugene O’Neill Society, the gathering takes place once every three years and is an extraordinarily fun occasion to meet O’Neill scholars and fans from all over the world in a casual setting.

This year’s dates are June 18-21, 2014.

Coming soon - O'Neill conference hits New London.
