Long Day's Journey into Night

Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville reprise their roles in Richard Eyre’s critically acclaimed production of Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Long Day’s Journey Into Night, after a sold-out run as part of Bristol Old Vic’s 250th Anniversary season.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night features a family of four: haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present. Caught in a cycle of love and resentment, the Tyrones and their two sons test the strength of family bonds as they indulge in their vices, unraveling the truth as day turns to night and the family’s lives fall to ruin.
Often called one of the most powerful American plays of the 20th century, O’Neill’s masterpiece finds a new home at Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited run (10 weeks only) through 27 January 2018.

    It's not the lightest play, but even coming from a tiring day it was still very entertaining and captivating. I came for Jeremy Irons but stayed for Lesley Manville, who was absolutely spectacular. The scenery was probably the best I have ever seen, truly stunning. A beautiful, touching and strong play.

    The acting in total was first class. Having travelled especially to see this some 150 miles, we were not dissapointed. Our only mis-giving was that at 3 hours it was a tad too long.

    The play was certainly interesting, and the acting was excellent, but it was way too long and this detracted from the enjoyment. There were certain sections that seemed to overplay the plot. I think it would have been much better at about an hour shorter.
