Long Day's Journey into Night

By Eugene O’Neill. 
Directed by Richard Eyre. 

Following its sold out run as part of Bristol Old Vic’s 250th Anniversary season, Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville reprise their roles in Richard Eyre’s acclaimed production of Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece, Long Day’s Journey Into Night. 

The Tyrones’ summer home, August 1912. Haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present, the Tyrones and their two sons test the bonds of a family caught in a cycle of love and resentment. As day turns to night and the family indulge in their vices, the truth unravels leaving behind a quartet of ruined lives. 

Considered one of the most powerful American plays of the 20th century, Long Day’s Journey Into Night plays a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre, London from 27 January 2018 for 10 weeks only.

  • Stunning

    14 May 2018

    It's not the lightest play, but even coming from a tiring day it was still very entertaining and captivating. I came for Jeremy Irons but stayed for Lesley Manville, who was absolutely spectacular. The scenery was probably the best I have ever seen, truly stunning. A beautiful, touching and strong play.

  • Top notch acting

    10 April 2018

    The acting in total was first class. Having travelled especially to see this some 150 miles, we were not dissapointed. Our only mis-giving was that at 3 hours it was a tad too long.

  • Good play but too long

    8 April 2018

    The play was certainly interesting, and the acting was excellent, but it was way too long and this detracted from the enjoyment. There were certain sections that seemed to overplay the plot. I think it would have been much better at about an hour shorter.

  • Stunning: Long Days Journey into Night

    8 April 2018

    The cast, the stage set up, the story, the costumes .... absolutely brilliant! Stunning performance from all the cast; it was a real pleasure to see Jeremy Iron on stage which was a first time for me. Lesley Manville was amazing in her role of a mother addicted to morfine, a real joy to watch her in such a demanding role.
