About Long Day’s Journey Into Night

★★★★ “Brian Cox is magnetic in O’Neill for the Succession generation” Evening Standard

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), Laurie Kynaston (Spring Awakening, The Son, Fool Me Once), and Derry Girls’ Louisa Harland (Ulster American).

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.

  1. I had the pleasure of seeing A long days journey into night yesterday , it was a long play and whilst the Wyndham theatre is beautiful,the seats and leg room needed to be more comfortable for such a long play: However I have never experienced such amazing acting before,from all of the cast of 4 but special mention for the actress who played Mary who told the story not just with her words but with her whole body particularly her hands.It was an experience I shall not forget .
