Eugene O'Neill's semi-autobiographical masterpiece pulls back the curtain on the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family, where deep-seated resentments and bourbon-fueled tirades cause a family to expose their darkest natures. O'Neill paints this powerful and heartrending portrait as a single day that begins like any other, only to become a night from which the Tyrones will never recover.
Regarded as one of America's most important plays, Long Day's Journey Into Night premiered in Stockholm in 1956. Its Broadway debut followed later that year. The production won the Tony Award for Best Play and Best Actor in a Play (Fredric March as James Tyrone). In 1957 the play received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A 2016 revival, starring Gabriel Byrne and Jessica Lange, was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Play.
