Long Day's Journey into Night

By Eugene O’Neill. 
Directed by Richard Eyre. 

Following its sold out run as part of Bristol Old Vic’s 250th Anniversary season, Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville reprise their roles in Richard Eyre’s acclaimed production of Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece, Long Day’s Journey Into Night. 

The Tyrones’ summer home, August 1912. Haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present, the Tyrones and their two sons test the bonds of a family caught in a cycle of love and resentment. As day turns to night and the family indulge in their vices, the truth unravels leaving behind a quartet of ruined lives. 

Considered one of the most powerful American plays of the 20th century, Long Day’s Journey Into Night plays a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre, London from 27 January 2018 for 10 weeks only.

  • Long Day's Journey (well) into Night

    11 April 2018

    Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville brought a great deal of emotional angst to the roles they played. They performed brilliantly. It is a long play (3 hrs 25 mins) which requires intense concentration but it was worth it. Eugene O'Neil is an interesting playwright - subtle but highly charged. This play was autobiographical - how sad his childhood must have been!

  • Jeremy Irons shines

    5 April 2018

    Fantastic performance of this classic American play. Dialogue is superbly executed by all the cast and Jeremy Irons shines as the drunken put upon James Tyrone. Well worth seeing.

  • Superb acting

    5 April 2018

    Long Day’s Journey Into Night had an excellent cast. And the acting was superb from all the actors. My slight critism is that it could have been shorter without losing sing any impact.
