Eugene O’Neill

(1888 - 1953)

Eugene O’Neill’s father was a noted actor who portrayed Edmond Dantès in a stage adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo over four thousand times; as a child he had no permanent place of residence except for Monte Cristo Cottage, a summer house in Connecticut, which he used as the setting for Long Day’s Journey into Night. In 1937 O’Neill became the first American playwright to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.
