Dennehy set for O’Neill double bill

Actor to star in 'Hughie' with 'Last Tape'

Brian Dennehy will be doing a double dose of Eugene O’Neill.

The Tony Award winning actor will once again star in “Hughie” in a double bill with Samuel Beckett’s “Krapp’s Last Tape” at New Haven’s Long Wharf Theater this fall. Dennehy previously starred in the O’Neill two-hander, first in 2004 at Providence’s Trinity Repertory Company and then at Chicago’s Goodman Theater.

The double bill with Dennehy will first be seen in June at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, with the O’Neill work directed by Robert Falls and the Beckett piece staged by Canadian director Jennifer Tarver. Directors have not been confirmed for the Long Wharf run.

Dennehy, who won a Tony in 2003 for his role in the most recent Broadway revival of O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” will also star in 2009 in “Desire Under the Elms,” helmed by Falls at the Goodman.

Two more titles will be announced for Long Wharf’s 2008-09 season lineup, which also includes the premiere of Paul Vogel’s “A Civil War Christmas,” the East Coast bow of Athol Fugard’s “Victory” and a stage adaptation by Eric Ting of Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea.”
