Long Day's Journey Into Night

Wyndham's Theatre

production closed


The Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End is the latest home of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, which once again brings some top talent to bring it to life in the capital.

Long considered a masterpiece, this show earns acclaim at every venture and this most recently occurred in the West End back in 2012 when David Suchet appeared in a production of the show at the Apollo Theatre. Fast forward to 2016 when the show was once again revived, this time at the Bristol Old Vic, and it proved correct once again.

It is the latter that makes its way to the West End on this occasion, with Richard Eyre once again directing Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville on the stage. With this amount of talent working to bring it to life it will be the perfect way for the latest generation of audiences to witness how Eugene O’Neill’s play is considered one of the most important of the last century.

The story takes us to Connecticut and introduces us to the Tyrone family, with events beginning on a summer morning and continuing to midnight. During that time all of the dysfunctions that define the family are seen, with anger and resentment bubbling away alongside substance abuse and secrets. It is a damning portrayal of an American household in the early 20th century and one that has captivated audiences for decades.

With a Pulitzer Prize amongst is accolades and star power bringing it to life it is bound to be a worthy follow-up to the previous shows at the Wyndham’s Theatre – Heisenberg and Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar And Grill – and ensure audiences continue to flock to the West End.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night runs at the Wyndham’s Theatre in 2018.
