Long Day's Journey Into Night in London

Starring:

Brian Cox

A beautifully crafted classic US drama

Emmy, Golden Globe and Olivier winner Brian Cox takes to the stage in spring 2024 in Long Day’s Journey Into Night, the West End revival of Eugene O’Neill’s classic family drama. Billed as a landmark production, this deeply moving and uplifting play is directed by the award-winning Jeremy Herrin.

A brilliant work-out for your emotions

O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama explores one summer day in the life of the Tyrones, a chaotically dysfunctional family based on his own experiences. Expect a compelling rollercoaster ride through love, hate, betrayal, addiction, and the fragility of the family bonds connecting us.

There are so many reasons why you should see Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Director Jeremy Herrin gave us a critically acclaimed production of James Graham’s brilliant Best of Enemies, and this new production is tipped to be just as powerful. Eugene O’Neill’s evocative characters and language are beautifully represented. No wonder it’s being billed as unmissable theatre. And the cast is superb.

An award-winning cast of top acting talent

Brian Cox, whose memorable role in TV’s Succession thrilled millions, plays the head of the family James Tyrone. He’s the winner of two British Academy Scotland Awards, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and Olivier Awards for 1984’s Rat in the Skull and 1988’s Titus Andronicus. His role as Logan Roy in Succession won him a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Golden Globe Award, three nominations for Primetime Emmys plus a British Academy Scotland Award. This is Cox’s first stage appearance in almost ten years.

Cox is joined by the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning Patricia Clarkson of Sharp Objects and House of Cards, who plays Mary Tyrone. The BAFTA nominee Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande) plays James junior, Louisa Harland (Derry Girls, Ulster American) plays Cathleen and Laurie Kynaston (Spring Awakening, Bare, The Son, Fool Me Once) joins the production as Edmund Tyrone. Lizzie Clachan is the designer and Jack Knowles is the lighting designer. Tom Gibbons is sound designer and Polly Bennett is responsible for movement direction. Casting is by Jessica Ronane and the associate director is Justina Kehinde.

Critically acclaimed, hard-hitting mid-century drama

Some plays never age or fade, and this is one of them. Not far short of 70 years since it premiered, it remains one of the greatest American plays of the 20th Century.

A four act drama written between 1939 and 1941 as war raged, Long Day’s Journey Into Night wasn’t published until O’Neill died in 1956. Premiering in Sweden in early 1956, it hit Broadway in November the same year and won a Tony for Best Play.

In 1957 the playwright was awarded a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Drama and his work has seldom been off the stage somewhere in the world, loved by amateur productions to repertory to Broadway and the West End.

Deeply moving

A slow moving play which is also long being over 3 hours which requires patience and a willingness to be led deeply into the characters but the results are very worthwhile. Unlike many modern day films and theatrical productions, there is no quick action, instant gratification. The result: an aftertaste which will last long.

A masterclass in acting...but very long!

A masterclass in acting but if I'm honest, 3 hours is too long for me and I struggled during the final 45 minutes or so!

Excellent acting (but very long play)

Thank goodness for Lesley Manville, Jeremy Irons and Matthew Beard, all really exceptional. It is a very long play with difficult themes and so needs to be in capable hands. The other 2 members of the cast were also very good. If you like Ibsen then you’ll like this too.

Long Play

The play is a bit long but worth staying for.

Review: LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT at Wyndham’s Theatre

Long-Days-Journey-Into-Night.jpg Eugene O’Neill completed Long Day’s Journey Into Night in 1941, but such was his apparent shame at having produced this dramatic dissection and evisceration of a fictional Irish-American family, that he submitted it with the instruction that it was not to be published until 25 years after his death, and was on no account ever to be performed on a stage.
