One of the greatest American dramas of the 20th century, Eugene O’Neill’s hugely moving and personal Pulitzer Prize-winning Long Day's Journey Into Night delves into the private lives and failings of a conflicted family, while revealing insights into his own upbringing.
The four members of the troubled Tyrone family each have their vice to dull their memories of their painful past and face their current trials. Over the course of one devastating day at their Connecticut summer home the resentments of the family are exposed, pushing their bonds to the limit.
