Long Day’s Journey into Night By Eugene O’Neill The Puppet Theatre Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March 2009 "Eugene O'Neill's autobiographical play won the Pulitzer prize for Drama in 1957. Written in 1940, O'Neill requested the play not be published until after the death of all those involved. Often regarded as his masterpiece, Long Day's Journey into Night is the account of a family trying to live with one another. Struggling with addiction, they all constantly conceal, blame, resent, regret, accuse and deny in an escalating cycle of conflict with occasional desperate and half-sincere attempts at affection, encouragement and consolation." ACT ONE Living room of the Tyrone’s summer home 8:30am on a day in August 1912 ACT TWO Scene 1: The same - around 12:45 Scene 2: The same - around a half-hour later ACT THREE The same - around 6:30 that evening ACT FOUR The same - around midnight.
