Long Day's Journey into Night
Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece captures one fateful summer's day in the life of the Tyrones, a family tied together by a lifetime of secrets. Haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present, James and Mary Tyrone and their two sons test the bonds of family caught in a cycle of love and resentment. However, as day turns to night and each member of the family indulges in their vices, the truth unravels leaving behind a quartet of ruined lives.
