A Bristol Old Vic Production

"The past is the present isn't it? And the future too?"

Following its sold out run as part of our 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 bond 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 quarted 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.

An intense, electrifying production."


A production tantalisingly close to perfection."


Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville shine with sexual passion and rage."


What a complete production this is."
