Although we have canceled live productions this year, we invite you to enjoy some short video clips of who we are and what we do!


Our first snippet is A Word From Our Artistic Director, Eric Fraisher Hayes
The second is A Short Hiking Tour of Tao House, by board member John Barry.


Please check back here again, as we plan to release a series of fun and informative video clips created by EONF board members and friends of the Foundation. Click HERE.

Due to the Contra Costa County Health Services Shelter-in-Place order, the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site is closed until further notice.
The “Lost Plays,” the three one-acts of O’Neill’s early career, will not be produced live in August  at the Village Theatre, as previously planned, because of the need to maintain safety during this time of social-distancing protocols. We are, however, working on new and innovative ways to present these plays in other forms, and will keep you posted as these plans develop.
A Moon for the Misbegotten, which was scheduled for September in the Old Barn, Tao House, will not be presented this year.


Congratulations to our raffle winner, Bob Sehr! He will be treated to a weekend at the East Brother Light Station in San Francisco Bay (once the light station bed & breakfast re-opens). Thanks to all for your contributions. Many thanks also to Chuck Lewis for making this prize possible. If you missed our donor plea, it’s not too late! Click HERE
