Eugene O’neills semi-autobiographical play Long Day’s Journey into Night has opened to stellar reviews. According to the review at the Telegraph: “At the end of this superb production….I barely had the strength to get out of my seat. The dramatic impact is shattering. The raw pain, passion and even the occasional clumsiness of the writing are testament to a work of heroic honesty.O’Neill himself described it as being “written in tears and blood”.
“This is a masterly production of a masterpiece. It isn’t easy to sit through, but the dramatic rewards are enormous.”
