Sends you out of the theatre uplifted rather than depressed by O'Neill's unflinching ability to confront his troubled past.
Drawing on his own experiences, Nobel laureate for Literature Eugene O'Neill's multi-award winning Long Day's Journey into Night tells a heart-breaking story about a troubled family and considers the devastating effects of addiction, deep seated unhappiness and familial dysfunction. Set in 1912 at their seaside home in Connecticut, the Tyrone family's grief unravels over the course of one day as James and Mary and their two sons Jamie and Edmund are caught in a corrosive cycle of concealed resentment, accusations, blame and regret, painfully bound by tortured love.
O'Neill wrote Hard Day's Journey into Night in the early 1940s, but refused to allow it to be published until after his death. Three years after his death in 1953 died, his tragic drama was published and received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1957.
The revival of Long Day's Journey into Night - considered to be O'Neill?s masterwork and one of the seminal plays of the twentieth century - is directed by acclaimed Anthony Page whose West End credits include Night of the Iguana, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Doll's House, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The heart-breaking drama stars critically acclaimed actress Laurie Metcalf as Mary Tyrone and award- winning actor David Suchet as James Tyrone.
