The 9th International Conference on Eugene O’Neill

Eugene O'Neill: Hunted, Haunted, Home

New London, Connecticut

June 18-21, 2014

Sponsored by The Eugene O’Neill Society


The summers of Eugene O’Neill’s formative years were spent in the family’s vacation home in New London, Connecticut—what is known today as the Monte Cristo Cottage.  This conference will explore the significance of this National Historic Landmark and other venues that inspired the plays of O’Neill, America’s only Nobel-Prize-winning playwright. Although the Monte Cristo Cottage was the setting for onlytwo O’Neill plays, Ah, Wilderness! and Long Day’s Journey Into Night, the themes of home, domesticity, and family resonate loudly throughout his plays in many different iterations: from nostalgically celebrated to desperately sought-after to cynically criticized.
