Eugene O’Neill, the only American playwright to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, told his son Eugene, Jr., that “The one thing that explains more than anything about me is the fact that I’m Irish. And, strangely enough,” O’Neill complained, “it is something that all the writers who have attempted to explain me and my work have overlooked.”

In his speech “Eugene O’Neill and Ireland” Dan McGovern, president of the Eugene O’Neill Foundation, will attempt to remedy that oversight. Mr. McGovern is also the American co-chair of the Eugene O’Neill International Festival of Theatre in New Ross, Ireland, and a visiting scholar in the theater department at UC Berkeley.
