Long Day’s Journey into Night Tickets On Sale NowBrian Cox makes a triumphant return to the West End in Long Day’s Journey into Night at Wyndham’s Theatre in 2024, marking one of the biggest events of the year. Eugene O’Neill’s magnum opus is a beautiful portrait of family life, revived with a all-star cast. If you were blown away by Cox in HBO's epic family portrait Succession, do not miss your chance to see him take on another towering patriarch in this incredible American classic.
About Long Day’s Journey into NightA summer day in the life of the Tyrones unfolds in this great American play, which is largely based on playwright Eugene O’Neill’s own dysfunctional family. Each member of this chaotic group is struggling with love, hate, betrayal and failure, and the bond that holds them together is becoming increasingly frail.
Considered by many to be Eugene O’Neill’s masterwork, Long Day’s Journey into Night was first performed in 1956, and won O’Neill a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In this huge revival, director Jeremy Herrin (Best of Enemies) brings the universality of one family’s struggles into sharp focus, for an absolutely unmissable production.
Brian Cox in Long Day’s Journey into NightBrian Cox leads the cast of Long Day’s Journey into Night, as James Tyrone, marking his first London stage role in 10 years. Further casting includes Emmy Award-winner Patricia Clarkson as Mary Tyrone, Daryl McCormack as James Jr., Laurie Kynaston as Edmund and Louisa Harland as Cathleen.
Cox has long been considered a phenomenal stage and screen actor, but his star has shot up thanks to a starring role in Succession as Logan Roy, whose unexpected retirement leaves a power vacuum in his company, and sets his children against each other as they vie for the spoils. He is even better on stage, and you will be amazed by his performance as an embittered, failed actor whose resentment reverberates down generations.
