Interesting insight into O'Neill

My husband and I teach English so we always hit literary attractions. This is the childhood home of Eugene O'Neill. It is a "must see" for anyone who enjoys his works.

Open only for limited hours and days, but well worth a visit. The scene of several great Eugene O'Neil's plays and his boyhood summer home. Owned by the O'Neil Theater Center and staffed by knowledgeable guides. A real treat for theater buffs.

Being in the cottage where America's best playwright lived as a boy was sensational. This house was the scene of America's best play, Long Days Journey Into Night.

Today is Friday, August 23rd and the weekend before Labor Day. We arrived at 12:25 pm and the place was closed. No sign posting any... More
