About this show

O'Neill's searing drama about his home life remains one of the most challenging and moving theatrical experiences and is one of the most enduring works of art of the last century. In August, 1912 the four Tyrones gather in their summer home in New London, Connecticut, where they embark on an extraordinary psychological journey over the course of one long, hot summer day. Each family member battles his own past in four remarkable personal struggles that reveal the family's downward spiral of alcoholism and drug addiction. The play is so personal and revealing that O'Neill forbade it to be published or performed until after his death.
