In the hot summer month of August, in the year 1912, the Tyrone family gathers in their summer home in New London, Connecticut. Long Day's Journey Into Night marks their extraordinary psychological journey. As the riveting event of the day unfolds, each member of the family battles their own demons, their pasts, and one another in four remarkable personal struggles. Each family member relentlessly attacks and gingerly retreats from one another, attempting to shelter behind the very self-delusions they are trying to escape. Long Day's Journey Into Night is O'Neill's most courageous work and one that has made its mark on the landscape of American literature.
