“Inarguably one of the greatest dramas in the history of the American theater” (Chicago Tribune), Eugene O'Neill’s LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT receives a vibrant and timely update in this interpretation by prolific, Tony Award®-nominated director Robert O’Hara (Slave Play).
At the heart of O’Neill’s masterwork is the Tyrone family, living together again under lockdown. As the pressure builds, each family member retreats to their own destructive vices. This must-see production inspired by the events of 2020 is a visceral and provocative exploration of addiction and mental health speaking to our present moment.
Starring Emmy® Award-nominee Bill Camp (The Crucible, "The Queen’s Gambit"), three-time Obie Award®-winner Elizabeth Marvel (Hedda Gabler, "Homeland"), Tony Award-nominee Ato Blankson-Wood (Slave Play), and Jason Bowen (The Play That Goes Wrong).
Eugene O’Neill’s masterwork Long Day’s Journey into Night is being revived Off-Broadway in 2022. Often called one of the greatest American plays, the show is a semi-autobiographical account of O’Neill’s own family and the tensions between them.

Long Day’s Journey into Night is a play set over the course of a single day at the Tyrone family’s seaside cottage, a picturesque setting that hides a host of family troubles. Each of the four occupants — the spouses James and Mary, and their two grown sons, Jamie and Edmund — are dealing with their own failings and the consequences of everyone else’s.
James has spent his entire career as an actor playing one character and now is rich, but unfulfilled. Mary is a morphine addict who relapses as soon as her rehab treatment ends. Jamie quickly turns to alcohol and sex to deal with his family problems, and Edmund is struggling with a tuberculosis diagnosis and the loss of normalcy in his family as their problems boil over.
Though an American play, Long Day’s Journey into Night made its world premiere in Stockholm, Sweden in February 1956 before making its American premiere in Boston and opening on Broadway later that year. The show won a Tony Award for Best Play, and Fredric March, who played James, won for Best Actor in a Play. The show has been performed countless times worldwide since, and now Tony-nominated director Robert O’Hara is bringing an updated version of the classic show back Off-Broadway.
