LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

By Eugene O’Neill

AMERICAN LEGACY SERIES
Directed by Brendon Fox

BATTLE. OUT LOUD. Considered one of the all-time great American plays, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterwork lays bare what we all know to be true: the ardor of familial love cannot always protect you. What begins as an ordinary summer day at the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family morphs into a night filled with foggy, drink-laced demons. Long-buried secrets are revealed which once exposed cannot be ignored. A long-revered showcase for tour-de-force performances, Long Day’s Journey Into Night is a compassionately brutal look at the devastating impact of addiction and one family’s struggle to fight for love itself.

“It is a stunning theatrical experience.”
– NY Herald-Tribune
