A drama by Eugene O’Neill

Directed by Scott Edmiston

Running time is around 3 and a half hours with one intermission.

Join New Rep as they explore this 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning classic by one of America’s most renowned playwrights, Eugene O’Neill. This semi-autobiographical masterpiece intimately examines the addictions, regrets, and deceits of the tormented Tyrone family. Through the course of a heart-wrenching day, the members of the family confront one another as their blame, resentment, and animosity explodes.

One of the marvels of Long Day’s Journe_y _— and one reason it so often seems newly born with every revival — is it can accommodate shifts in its center of emotional gravity.
