Long Days Journey Into Night show image
"Stammering is the native eloquence of us fog people"
 
Eugene O Neill is regarded as America's greatest dramatist and Long Day's Journey into Night his finest play. This Druid production is the first major Irish production for many years of a work in which O'Neill's Irish heritage plays a significant part. Taking place over the course of a single day and night in 1912, it is O’Neill’s journey into the night of the four embattled souls of the Tyrone family.
 
Druid has assembled an unprecedented company of some of the most acclaimed US and Irish actors with James Cromwell (The Queen, LA Confidential) and Michael Esper (recently seen alongside Sigourney Weaver in Crazy Mary in New York) joining leading lights of the Irish stage, Marie Mullen (Tony Award Winner for The Beauty Queen of Leenane) and Aidan Kelly (Julius Caesar, Terminus).

What Do We Think?
A major play, a major cast and a major director – Druid’s Long Day’s Journey into Night is likely to be a rare theatrical treat that will resonate long after the Festival is over.
