The first images from Richard Eyre’s production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, now in previews at the Wyndham’s Theatre have been released.
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.
Following its successful run at the Bristol Old Vic as part of the theatre’s 250th anniversary season, Richard Eyre’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s play arrives in the West End for a strictly limited season.
The West End run stars Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville, who both reprise their roles from the Bristol Old Vic run of the production. They are joined on stage by Jessica Regan, Matthew Beard and Rory Keenan.
Following its West End run, the production will then transfer to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Harvey Theater (8-27 May) and theWallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Los Angeles (8 June – 1 July).
As well as being directed by Richard Eyre, the production’s creative team also includes set designs by Rob Howell, lighting by Peter Mumford and sound by John Leonard.
Long Day’s Journey Into Night will play at the Wyndham’s Theatre until the 8th April 2018. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, See Tickets.com, Last Minute.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Encore Tickets, See Tickets.com and Love London Love Culture.
