Long Day’s Journey Into Night

Citizens Theatre, Glasgow and HOME present a new co-production of one of the greatest American dramas of the twentieth century.

The four members of the troubled Tyrone family each have their vice to dull their memories of their painful past and face their current trials. Over the course of one devastating day at their Connecticut summer home the resentments of the family are exposed, pushing their bonds to the limit.

Eugene O’Neill’s moving and insightful Pulitzer Prize-winning play delves into the private lives and failings of the conflicted family while revealing insights into his own upbringing.

Directed by Citizens Theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill, director of Endgame in 2016.

★★★★ “[Eugene] O’Neill’s bruising classic hits home… Compelling.” – The Guardian

★★★★ ” In an age of rapid-fire 90-minute plays with no interval, a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece certainly feels like a good old-fashioned banquet, albeit a well-oiled one… Dominic Hill’s painstaking, fluent production holds its audience spellbound for the bulk of the three-hour running time.” – The Times (behind paywall)

★★★★ “A bold yet reverent reading of an important moment in theatre.” – The Stage

“Dominic Hill’s production [is] a gruelling and enthralling account of a great 20th century drama… All five players deliver performances to remember.” – The Scotsman

★★★★ “Dominic Hill’s mighty revival… Delivered in stately fashion… This is a show that aches with the pain of a dynasty in freefall.” – Herald Scotland

★★★★½ “Dominic Hill’s direction pulls out the underlying tension… The performances by the entire cast are slick and natural. While a fairly long play, you remain fully engrossed throughout… This is a show mot to be missed.” The Reviews Hub

★★★★ “The cast do a magnificent job with Eugene O’Neill’s intense script… The evening flies by.” – Broadway World

★★★★ “Dominic Hill directs a fine cast led by the vigorously mesmerising George Costigan as [the] family head… It’s a long play but Hill is, fortunately, able to bring out the humour well… It is, in the end, worth taking in this classic play performed by a strong cast in a visually striking production.” – Backstage Pass
