Brian Cox to star in Long Day’s Journey Into Night in the West End
Acclaimed actor Brian Cox (Succession) plans to return to the West End in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night. No dates or venue have been announced for the project, which Cox has long held an ambition to star in. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, Long Day’s Journey Into Night will see Cox take on the part of patriarch James Tyrone, a faded performer who is wrecked by addiction, bitter rage and denial. Brian Cox is best known for playing Logan Roy in long-running HBO drama Succession. His stage career includes winning Olivier awards for Rat in the Skull in 1984 at the Royal Court and Titus Andronicus for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1988. On Broadway he has played Eugene O’Neill's play Strange Interlude, in 1985. Cox said in a press statement that: “I’m a great admirer of Jeremy Herrin’s work and I am looking forward to us delving into O’Neill’s masterpiece together.” Jeremy Herrin said: “It’s the privilege of a lifetime to direct one of our finest actors in one of the greatest plays ever written. The peerless Brian Cox as James Tyrone is a match for the ages, and a wonderful opportunity to create a deeply moving and cathartic piece of the theatre.” Jeremy Herrin's latest projects include directing James Graham's acclaimed new play Best of Enemies - now playing at the Noel Coward Theatre. In October 2023, Brian Cox will star as the composer Johann Sebastian Bach in new play The Score by Oliver Cotton, directed by Trevor Nunn at Theatre Royal Bath. Long Day’s Journey Into Night last appeared in the West End in 2018 starring Jeremy Irons. More about Long Day’s Journey Into Night starring Brian Cox
