"Soul-piercing new production...starring Vanessa Redgrave in a performance that will never leave the memory of anyone who sees it."
Ben Brantley, NEW YORK TIMES

"Superbly revived."

Long Day's Journey Into Night follows the Tyrone clan through a mesmerizing day and night, as they battle their demons, their pasts, and one another in four extraordinary personal struggles.

James Tyrone, an aging but once promising actor, has long ago sacrificed his art for commerce, choosing to tour in the same pedestrian stage play year after year. Oldest son Jamie is a troublemaking alcoholic, envious of the writing talent of his ever more sickly younger brother Edmund. Unable to confront Edmund's illness and bitter from her husband's emotional and financial selfishness, matriarch Mary Tyrone relapses into a morphine addiction that has already had dire consequences on her personal and familial well-being.

The play depicts the riveting events of the next 16 hours as each family member drifts further into drug-induced oblivion and reveals his or her struggle for survival.
