Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the Wyndham’s Theatre starring Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville
Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece is brought to life by a multi-award winning team led by director Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Iris), and starring Jeremy Irons (Brideshead Revisited, The Borgias) opposite Academy Award nominee Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread, Ghosts, Another Year).
An unashamedly autobiographical account of O’Neill’s own life, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is considered one of the most powerful American plays of the 20th century.
Long Day’s Journey Into Night will run from 27 January 2018 until 8 April 2018 at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present, James and Mary Tyrone and their two sons test the bonds of a family caught in a cycle of love and resentment.
As day turns to night and each member of the family indulges in their vices, the truth unravels leaving behind a quartet of ruined lives.
Jeremy Irons, Lesley Manville, Matthew Beard, Rory Keenan and Jessica Regan.
Directed by Sir Richard Eyre, with design by Rob howell, lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by John Leonard.
