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.
One of the UK’s leading and critically acclaimed actors, Academy, Golden Globe and Tony Award-winner, Jeremy Irons returns to the London stage for the first time in over ten years. He is joined by BAFTA and Olivier Award-winner Lesley Manville, one of Britain’s most respected actresses, who is reunited with director Richard Eyre following their critically acclaimed, sold-out production of Ibsen’s Ghosts.
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.
