A NOTE FROM ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, VINCENT M. LANCISI

E

ugene O’Neill’s characters are drawn incredibly well—intensely complicated in their motivations and desires. The characters in Long Day’s Journey Into Night harbor inner demons that are dark and overwhelming at times—their familial bond is key to why we care so much about them as humans, but it’s also what makes each of them so tragic. Their love of one another runs deep amidst the forces of troubled family dynamics and drug addiction threatening to obliterate their dreams, their bonds, and their entire lives—in spite of which they still hold on. This compelling and uplifting undercurrent of love is what makes me happy to revisit this play over and over again—these people love each other so much that they are in the fight of their lives to hold on to it. Actors are, of course, at the center of Everyman Theatre, and O’Neill wrote dream roles for actors—ones demanding great transformation and rigor. A major reason why I decided to produce Long Day’s Journey Into Night now is because this year marks Deborah Hazlett’s 20th anniversary as a member of our esteemed Resident Acting Company. Audiences have seen Deborah play iconic roles throughout her tenure at Everyman—Hedda Gabler, Amanda Wingfield, Linda Loman and Mrs. Alving, to name a few. For the last decade I’ve been looking forward to the right moment to cast Deborah as the matriarch at the center of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Mary Tyrone, and that moment is now—a dream role come true.

Mary Tyrone’s sons, played by Resident Company members Danny Gavigan and Tim Getman, are the type of challenging, nuanced roles that fine actors search for and sometimes never find throughout their entire careers. Danny and Tim are not only superb actors, they also know each other very well and their on-stage relationship thrives because of it. Tim last appeared at Everyman in Outside Mullingar, and though he’s familiar to our stage it is a pleasure to welcome him in his first official role as a member of our Resident Company. Completing the family portrait, the amazing Kurt Rhoads takes on the role of James Tyrone—a character whom many refer to as “the American King Lear.” It’s an epic role that requires a formidable actor, and Kurt is perfect for the part. We are also thrilled that Katherine Ariyan is back on the Everyman Theatre stage playing the role of Cathleen, following her wonderful performance in M. Butterfly. O’Neill wrote this play at great emotional cost, as he was writing about real people in his own life. He told family secrets in a way so devastating to him that he didn’t want the play to be performed while he or his family were still alive—but the shame they endured in the face of addiction was so painful and so devastating, O’Neill felt he had to write about it. Now, it’s our turn to tell his story with actors committed to authenticity, poetry and truth. Welcome and enjoy the show.

A BOTTOMLESS WELL – PLAYING THE TYRONES By Robyn Quick Jessica Lange and Gabriel Byrne in Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Photo by Joan Marcus

“T

here are roles that arrive like gifts. Given and received. Mary Tyrone was that. No part I have played on stage or in film has ever captured me more. Actors can fall in love with characters they play, obsess over them, cling to them... sometimes we’re haunted by them. I loved Mary Tyrone. I longed to get to the theater each evening so I could experience her. So I could lose myself in her. The part of Mary Tyrone is a bottomless well. Impossible to exhaust.” ­—Jessica Lange1

special significance in the theatre: “From its very first performance in 1956, when Frederic March, Florence Eldridge, Bradford Dillman, and a young Jason Robards Jr. put their indelible stamp on the Tyrone family, Long Day’s Journey Into Night has enjoyed a forbidding reputation. […] Long Day’s Journey Into Night, you see, is no longer just a play. It is one of the theatre’s holy texts, a challenge by which careers are measured.”2 Generations of actors—from stage veterans to those beginning their acting careers— have eagerly welcomed this challenge. Jessica Lange’s notion of the role of Mary as a gift was echoed by Michael Shannon, her Jamie in the 2016 Broadway production. Shannon explained, “To me, it feels like a real privilege to do this play. It feels like being admitted into some secret society or something. There’s a lot of good actors in the world, but they don’t all get to do this.”3

Everyman Artistic Director Vincent Lancisi always knew that his theatre must one day stage what he calls “the ultimate family tragedy,” Long Day’s Journey Into Night. To him, it was “only a matter of time before we scale this mountain.” But, as director of a professional theatre where the actor is at the center of the work, he had to wait until the moment was right for members of For many actors who have performed in Long Everyman’s Resident Company to take on the Day’s Journey Into Night, admission to this task of playing the Tyrones. As theatre critic “secret society” was made all the more special David Richards observed, these roles have by their connections to the performance 1 Long Day’s Journey Into Night: Critical Edition, (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2014), Digital. 2 “Casting a Fearless Eye on a Sacred Text,” The New York Times, June 9, 1994. 3 Alexis Soloski, “Of Booze, Brutal Honesty, and Family,” The New York Times. 19 April 2016.

history of the play. Academy Award-winning actress Teresa Wright had an unforgettable experience watching Eldridge and March on Broadway in 1956; the elder actors became her friends and saw her in the role of Mary at Hartford Stage in 1971. That production at Hartford Stage also featured Tana Hicken as the Tyrone’s young maid, Cathleen. Ms. Hicken went on to play Mary at Arena Stage in a 1995 performance considered powerful by critics and deeply moving by audience members, including Lancisi. When it came time for Everyman to produce Long Day’s Journey Into Night in 2018, Lancisi knew that he must put it in the hands of his long-time artistic associate, director Donald Hicken, who had lived the play through his wife Tana’s productions. Donald Hicken describes Long Day’s Journey Into Night as “the holy grail” for actors, not just for this performance history, but also because playwright Eugene O’Neill’s characters “require a level of commitment and virtuosity that few roles match.” Actors have noted the wide range of emotions displayed by each character as among the challenges of performing the play. Teresa Wright was humbled by this aspect of the work: “I can’t help [but] feel great inadequacy because it’s played on so many levels of emotion—anger, hate, innocence, all mixed up with love, gratitude to her husband—it takes some doing to call on all those emotions.” She admitted, “It is exhausting but exhilarating—exhilarating if it goes well.”4 Jessica Lange also pointed to the “contradictions and the layering of emotions— woven into a patchwork pattern of sorrow, grief, guilt, anger, blame, love, desire, hate” as part of what makes Mary “a profound and fascinating character” to play. She shared Wright’s sense that “playing multiple emotions in the same moment is exciting.”5

And despite the predominantly realistic characters and setting—inspired by events from O’Neill’s life as a young man­—the play requires a level of emotional intensity that calls to mind the challenges of performing classical drama. Donald Hicken considers the role of James Tyrone to be America’s King Lear. Others have compared the play to Greek tragedy due to the extraordinary level of human suffering that the characters cause, endure, and seek to survive. As theatre critic Nelson Pressley put it, “The emotions of the autobiographical drama are Olympian, cutting right to the bone because O’Neill dared to unlock the terrible wreckage of his family life from his secret heart.”6 The power of the play, however, does not just emanate from individual performances, but from the relationships among the characters. Playing the Tyrones requires ensemble acting that Lancisi likens to an “awesome string quartet.” When Diana Leblanc directed the play at the Stratford Festival in 1994, she found, “the thing that makes it interesting, makes it heart-breaking, is that these people want to love each other, need each other’s love, but keep tearing shreds off each other.” She describes the dynamic: “None of them can move without reverberations, like a set of interlocking tectonic plates. They’re a family.”7 Gabriel Byrne, who played James Tyrone on Broadway in 2016, felt an even longer series of reverberations that gave performing in the play its real meaning: “There’s kind of an invisible connection between [O’Neill], what he called the haunted Tyrones, us on stage, and the audience. And we get to share that.” 8 Actors will be at the center of Everyman’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, as well, as the company engages Baltimore audiences with powerful performances of complex characters­—and a journey that continues to provide spellbinding theatre.

A PLAY WRITTEN IN TEARS AND BLOOD By Robyn Quick Eugene O’Neill and his wife, Carlotta. Photo by Carl Van Vechten

“T

he past is the present, isn’t it? It’s the future, too. We all try to lie out of that but life won’t let us.” -Long Day’s Journey Into Night

Mary Tyrone’s response to her husband’s desperate plea that she “forget the past” not only justifies her meditations on the multiple sources of blame for her family’s problems and pain, it also provides a description of the journey of the play. As their long day progresses, the characters venture deeper into the past events that have shaped them individually and collectively, and from which they will not release each other or themselves. The creation of the play was born out of a similar emotional journey to the past for playwright Eugene O’Neill. His widow, Carlotta O’Neill, described conversations the playwright initiated with her in the summer of 1939: He told her that he was “haunted” by an impulse to write a play about his “youth and family.” Soon, he began work on a play set in New London, Connecticut, in 1912, with characters and events that closely mirrored the biographical details of his mother, father, brother and himself. The writing of the play that was to become Long 1 2

Day’s Journey Into Night took an emotional toll, as he was “tortured every day by his own writing. He would come out of his study at the end of a day gaunt and sometimes weeping. His eyes would be all red and he looked ten years older than when he went in in the morning.”1 O’Neill’s dedication to the play upon its completion in 1941 described both his struggle and salvation in this work: For Carlotta, on our 12th Wedding Anniversary Dearest: I give you the original script of this play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood. A sadly inappropriate gift, it would seem, for a day celebrating happiness. But you will understand. I mean it as a tribute to your love and tenderness which gave me the faith in love that enabled me to face my dead at last and write this play—write it with deep pity and understanding and forgiveness for all the four haunted Tyrones. These twelve years, Beloved One, have been a Journey into Light—into love. You know my gratitude. And my love! Gene Tao House, July 22,1941.2

But he was not ready for the public to know the carefully-guarded family secrets woven into his work of art. He stipulated that Long Day’s Journey Into Night should not be published until twenty-five years after his death and never produced in the theatre. Upon his death in 1953, however, his widow Carlotta became the executor of his estate. She began negotiating publication and production rights for the play. Some of O’Neill’s friends and colleagues disagreed with her choice, arguing that it was a violation of the playwright’s wishes. Others, however, were delighted to learn of another play by O’Neill and welcomed the opportunity for Long Day’s Journey Into Night to be shared with the public. Drama critic Harold Clurman wrote upon its publication in 1956: “I believe she was right. Who knows what such a play—or any play—will mean twenty-five years after an author’s death? At the present moment, the play is a precious gift to us—regardless of its ultimate value.”3 Clurman’s sense of the play’s gift to his time was widely shared among his contemporaries. When the first Broadway production opened later that year, it received a standing ovation—a rarity at the time. That production ran for 390 3 4 5

performances and earned the playwright a Drama Critics Circle Award, a Tony Award, and his fourth Pulitzer Prize. Theatre critic Brooks Atkinson wrote that with this play, “the American theatre acquires size and stature.”4 And, in 2018, we can now answer Clurman’s question about the “ultimate value” of this play: It has been hailed as America’s greatest family tragedy—perhaps our greatest play—and produced on stages world-wide. O’Neill’s return to his past may have been a journey of tears and blood, but according to writer Robert Brustein, it also created something of great value for the playwright and for those who will continue to encounter his play: “O’Neill has elected to return to it once again—reliving the past and mingling with his ghosts—in order to find the secret and meaning of their suffering. For the playwright has discovered another escape besides alcohol, Nirvana, or death, from the terrible chaos of life: the escape of art where chaos is ordered and the meaningless made meaningful. The play itself is an act of forgiveness and reconciliation, the artist’s life-long resentment disintegrated through complete understanding of the past and total self-honesty.”5

EUGENE O’NEILL (Playwright) Eugene Gladstone O’Neill was born in a Broadway hotel room in New York City on October 16, 1888. O’Neill won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1936 and Pulitzer Prizes for four of his plays: Beyond The Horizon (1920); Anna Christie (1922); Strange Interlude (1928); and Long Day’s Journey Into Night


(1957). O’Neill is credited with raising American dramatic theater from its narrow origins to an art form respected around the world. He is regarded as America’s premier playwright. O’Neill’s father, James O’Neill, was one of nineteenth century America’s most popular actors. Young Eugene spent much of his early years on national tours with his father. In 1906 he entered Princeton University but was soon expelled. In 1909 he married, had a son, and was divorced within three years. By 1912, O’Neill had worked as a gold prospector in Honduras, as a seaman, and had become a regular at New York City’s flophouses and cheap saloons. That year he became ill with tuberculosis and was inspired to become a playwright while reading during his recovery. O’Neill continued to write until 1944 when he was stricken with a debilitating neurodegenerative disease known as cortical cerebellar atrophy which prevented further work. A revival of his work in 1956 led to the first production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, for which he won his final Pulizer Prize posthumously in 1957. Long Day’s Journey is considered by many to be one of the greatest plays ever written. STEVE SATTA (Dialects) Everyman Theatre: M. Butterfly, Under the Skin, You Can’t Take It With You, Someone to Watch Over Me, Going to St. Ives, Irma Vep, and Uncle Vanya. Recent credits in the DC area include work at Maryland Ensemble Theater, Olney Theatre, Center Stage, Single Carrot Theatre, Iron Crow Theatre, and Baltimore Playwright’s Festival.

WHAT IS THE BROMO DISTRICT? Imagine an arts district that connects the Stadiums and Downtown with a major corridor of Theatres, Galleries, and other public displays of art. Heading north, up the main arteries of Eutaw and Howard Streets, encounter Theatres, a public marketplace, and incubators spawning pop up galleries and emerging artists to be discovered. Continue on to find arts organizations celebrating the history and heritage of Baltimore and cultural institutions leading visitors up to the northern reaches of the district at Read and Howard Streets. In the next decade the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District will become a premiere district for performances and arts exhibitions sought out by citizens of Baltimore and visitors alike. The district will offer opportunities for artists of all disciplines to live, work, and create here. The district encourages the collaboration among its stakeholders and will attract new ones offering resources towards the creation and display of the arts.

A HISTORY OF EVERYMAN

E

veryman Theatre was founded by Vincent Lancisi in 1990. From the beginning, Everyman strove to provide top-notch theatre that is affordable and accessible to everyone. With a Resident Company of local, professional artists, Everyman has staged critically-acclaimed productions ranging from classics to contemporary works to world premieres over the past 27 years.

Everyman’s first production—The Runner Stumbles—was produced in the winter of 1990 at Saint John’s Church. For the next four years, Everyman could only afford to produce one production per year at various locations in Baltimore, including Vagabond’s Theatre, the Theatre Project and even a classroom at MICA.

subscriptions numbers grew and a string of popular and acclaimed productions, including Amadeus, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Lion in Winter, The Glass Menagerie, The Crucible, and the wildly successful Proof, proved that Everyman was a mainstay in the Baltimore theatre scene. Through a generous donation from Bank of America and the Harold A. Dawson Trust, Everyman was given its new home on Fayette Street. Over the span of six years, Everyman completed a successful $18 million capital campaign co-chaired by Gina and Dan Hirschhorn. In January 2013, Everyman celebrated the Grand Opening of its new permanent home on Fayette Street with the record-breaking production of the Pulitzer Prize winning drama, August: Osage County.

The 1994/95 Season marked a series for firsts for Everyman. It was the first year at Everyman celebrated its 25th anniversary 1727 North Charles Street, which would during the 2015/16 Season by producing be Everyman's home for 18 years. It also "The Great American Rep," a feat featuring marked the first multi-production line-up— American classics Death of a Salesman and A starting with Sam Shepard's Buried Child— Streetcar Named Desire performed with the and also offered subscriptions to patrons for same cast in rotating repertory. the first time. Now in it’s 27th Season, Everyman invites Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, you to be a part of its next chapter.
