Without giving too much away prolific aging leading man Brian Cox and Patricia Clarkson from Sixth Feet Under are the patriarchal leads in this rather dull overly long Anglo American family drama. As its been seemingly a accepted as Eugene O Neill's epic I can only assume it's just not aged very well with the pace chronically slow although the word age (as there's no drama) occurs over a day. The highlight for me was Clarkson's finely weighted understated performance and the white light ending which was a creative touch at the end by the director. Brian Cox was Brian Cox which adding to the plodding nature of the piece. One to avoid folks.

What we thought

Engrossing haunting WORLD-CLASS

Beautifully staged, from casting to set design!

This is an excellent production from an exceptional cast and creative team helmed by director Richard Eyes. I would be surprised to not see it encounter several prominent awards - or nominations at the very least - during its run here on the West End.
