“The Art of Escape”
15th Annual Eugene O’Neill Festival
THE ICEMAN COMETH
at the Old Barn at Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
at Village Theatre in downtown Danville produced by Role Players Ensemble
The Iceman Cometh and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof represent two of America's most celebrated playwrights at the height of their dramatic powers. In these two masterpieces, Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams invite us into the struggle we all experience when the stories we tell ourselves are challenged. At the intersection of truth and fiction, we all struggle to determine what role illusions play in our lives.
This fall the Eugene O'Neill Festival focuses on the human yearning for escape. In addition to these powerful and poetic plays, the Festival further explores the desire for escape through an exhibition of visual art, a series of sneak peek presentations at three community libraries, a scholars panel, tours and a special showcase performance.
