19 March 2024 - 8 June 2024
Award-winning actor Brian Cox stars in the West End revival of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London.
Directed by Jeremy Herrin (Best of Enemies), Long Day’s Journey Into Night stars multi-Olivier Award-winning actor Brian Cox (HBO’s Succession) as James Tyrone in Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning American classic.
The play also stars acclaimed Hollywood and Broadway star Patricia Clarkson (House of Cards, Sharp Objects), BAFTA nominee Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande), Alex Lawther (The End of the F**king World), and Derry Girls’ Louisa Harland.
Often regarded as the greatest American play of the 20th Century, this landmark new production comes to London’s Wyndham’s Theatre in Spring 2024.
O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play depicts a summer day in the life of the Tyrones, closely based on O’Neill’s own chaotically dysfunctional family.
Deeply moving and uplifting in equal measure, it’s a compelling story of love, hate, betrayal and addiction and the impossible fragility of family bonds.
Following his recent acclaimed production of Best of Enemies, Jeremy Herrin’s new production will bring into sharp focus the universality of Eugene O’Neill’s beautifully crafted characters and language, to create an unmissable theatrical event.
Not seen in the West End for almost 10 years, don’t miss Brian Cox’s triumphant return to the London stage.
Long Day’s Journey Into Night is playing at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London from 19 March to 8 June 2024.
