The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center of Waterford, CT, has been a major national hub for new play development since the mid-1960s and is home to one of the nation’s first new play festivals. Much beloved by leading American playwrights from August Wilson to Wendy Wasserstein, from Julia Cho to Adam Bock, the O’Neill continues to nurture emerging, established, and youth playwrights, actors, directors, producers, and critics. The Segal welcomes Pultizer Prize winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes (Water by the Spoonful, In the Heights) and other artists associated with the O’Neill for a celebratory evening featuring readings from plays recently developed there and reflections on the O’Neill’s storied past. Wendy C. Goldberg, Artistic Director of the O’Neill’s National Playwrights Conference, and Paulette Haupt, Artistic Director of the O’Neill’s National Music Theater Conference, will discuss upcoming programs, submission information, and the O’Neill’s plans for the future.

Moderated by Helen Shaw.
