A new stage production of the Eugene O’Neill epic Long Day’s Journey into Night, directed by Tony Award nominee Robert O’Hara (A Streetcar Named Desire for Audible, Slave Play), begins performances tonight at Audible Theater’s Minetta Lane Theatre.

Playing five weeks only, the limited engagement opened Jan. 25 and stars Emmy Award nominee Bill Camp (The Crucible, “The Queen’s Gambit”), three-time Obie Award winner Elizabeth Marvel (Hedda Gabler, “Homeland”), Tony Award nominee Ato Blankson-Wood (Slave Play), and Jason Bowen (The Play That Goes Wrong). O’Hara’s contemporary reimagining of Long Day’s Journey Into Night includes themes of drug/alcohol addiction and domestic violence.

Tickets are on sale now at The production will also be recorded as an Audible Original, extending its reach to millions of Audible listeners around the world.

The classic play that’s been called “inarguably one of the greatest dramas in the history of the American theater” (Chicago Tribune), O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night receives a timely update in this interpretation by prolific, Tony Award-nominated director Robert O’Hara.

At the heart of O’Neill’s masterwork is the Tyrone family, living together again under lockdown. As the pressure builds, each family member retreats to their own destructive vices. This must-see production inspired by the events of 2020 is a visceral and provocative exploration of addiction and mental health speaking to our present moment.

Long Day’s Journey into Night is produced by arrangement with Yale University, Trust U/W/O Shane O’Neill, and Bubbles Incorporated SA.
