Long Day's Journey Into Night

Some plays are timeless. This emotional rollercoaster rings just as true today as ever, and it’s a landmark new production. Brian Cox is making his return to the London stage, starring in Eugene O’Neill’s classic family drama Long Day’s Journey Into Night, accompanied by a stellar cast. The Emmy, Golden Globe and Olivier award-winning actor is directed by Jeremy Herrin, along with the Golden Globe and Emmy winning Patricia Clarkson of Sharp Objects and House of Cards, BAFTA nominee Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande) Louisa Harland (Derry Girls, Ulster American) and Laurie Kynaston.

Expect a powerful exploration of a dysfunctional, chaotic family trying to come to terms with itself. Written between 1939 and 1941, the play was staged for the first time in 1956 after the playwright’s death. It went on to thrill Broadway and win the Tony Award for Best Play the same year. O'Neill won the posthumous 1957 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Nowadays it’s widely regarded as his best work and one of the greatest American dramas of the 1900s. Inspired by the playwright’s own difficult family life, it feels so genuine it’s painful. This is brilliant stuff, enhanced by beautifully-drawn characters and language.

Journey
Literate, disturbing glimpse of a dysfunctional family. Powerful and unsettling.

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!
