Eugene O’Neill: A Documentary Film

Eugene O’Neill: A Documentary Film
Saturday, March 4, 2006 - 8:00pm
More than a biography of one of America’s greatest literary geniuses, Eugene O’Neill is a moving meditation on loss and redemption, family and memory. It explores the masterpieces O’Neill created at the end of his career – The Iceman Cometh and Long Day’s Journey Into Night pre-eminent among them – brought to life in scenes performed especially for the production by some of today’s most gifted actors – including Al Pacino, Zoe Caldwell, Christopher Plummer, Liam Neeson and Robert Sean Leonard.

The two hour PBS film will be shown in its entirety, with a question and answer session with Director Burns and film co-writers, the acclaimed O’Neill biographers Arthur and Barbara Gelb.

Admission is free; advance tickets are required and can be requested from the Mondavi Center Box Office by phone, e-mail or in person. Mondavi Center anticipates that tickets will be available day of show.

This is the inaugural event in The Forum@MC, a series of free lectures sponsored by Mondavi Center, in which visiting artists, lecturers and UC Davis faculty explore issues central to the performing arts in general and the performing arts at Mondavi Center in particular.
