Wyndham’s Theatre begins a Long Day’s Journey into Night

Second Half Productions have released production images for the new staging of Eugene O’Neill’s autobiographical magnum opus, Long Day’s Journey into Night…

The production is directed by Jeremy Herrin and this week began theatrical previews at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre with opening night on Tuesday 2 April 2024 – tickets at longdaysjourneylondon.com. In addition to 50 tickets at £25 for every performance, a limited number of £25 Day Seats are released at 10.30am on the day of each performance from the Wyndham’s Theatre box office.

Emmy award-winning actor Brian Cox plays James Tyrone, in his first West End role in almost a decade. He is joined by Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress Patricia Clarkson as matriarch Mary Tyrone alongside BAFTA award-nominee Daryl McCormack as James Jr, Laurie Kynaston as Edmund and Louisa Harland as Cathleen.

Often regarded as the greatest American play of the 20th Century, O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning piece depicts a summer day in the life of the Tyrones, closely based on O’Neill’s own dysfunctional family. Moving and inspiring in equal measure, O’Neill’s masterpiece is a compelling story of love, hate, betrayal, addiction and the impossible fragility of family bonds.

Following his recent acclaimed productions of A Mirror, Ulster American and Best of Enemies, Jeremy Herrin’s new production will bring into sharp focus the universality of O’Neill’s beautifully crafted characters and language.
