Full cast announced to join Brian Cox in LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

Long Days Journey Into NightThe full cast have been confirmed for the West End production of Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT.

They will join the previously announced Brian Cox (Succession), who takes on the role of James Tyrone in his first West End role in almost a decade.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin (Best of Enemies), the complete cast are:

  • Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) as matriarch Mary Tyrone
  • Alex Lawther (The End of the F***ing World, Black Mirror) as Edmund
  • BAFTA award-nominee Daryl McCormack (Bad Sisters, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande) as James Jr
  • Louisa Harland (Derry Girls) as Cathleen

Long Day's Journey into Night is designed by Lizzie Clachan, who won Designer of the Year at the International Opera Awards 2020 and 2022. Further creative team will be announced at a later date.

An autobiographical magnum opus, Long Day's Journey into Night is often regarded as the greatest American play of the 20th Century. Closely based on O’Neill’s own dysfunctional family, the story follows a summer's day with the Tyrones in a tale of love, hate, betrayal, addiction and the fragility of family bonds.

Running at the Wyndham's Theatre from 19 March, tickets go on general sale on 11 May from 10am.
