Our Mission

The mission of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation, Tao House, is to celebrate and promote the vision and legacy of Eugene O'Neill, America's foremost playwright.

To achieve its mission, the foundation collaborates with the National Park Service in restoring and preserving Tao House, providing for future generations a memorial that:

  • Perpetuates the vision of Eugene O'Neill
  • Provides artistic and educational programs which focus on Eugene
    O'Neill's contribution to theatre in America and the world.
  • Maintains a research library which collects, preserves and exhibits
    books, photos and artifacts related to Eugene O'Neill and the American theatre.

Tao House is located in Danville, California, at the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site, a National Park Service unit.
