Long Day's Journey Into Night


1997

Long Day's Journey Into Night is a strongly autobiographical play that Eugene O'Neil wrote in 1941, but that was released at his request only after his death. The heartbreaking play shows one day in the life of the family Tyrone. Father James is an aging stage actor and appears to be very stingy. His wife Mary loathes the endless tours of theatres and hotel rooms and is addicted to morphine. Their eldest son Jamie has a drinking problem and Edmund, the youngest, suffers from tuberculosis.
