Synopsis:
Here on Compact Disc - a full-cast recording starring Robert Ryan, Stacy Keach, and Geraldine Fitzgerald - Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night.

O'Neill's painful view of his own life forms the core of Long Day's Journey Into Night, one of the greatest of all American plays. The Tyrone family (father James, mother Mary, and sons Edmund and Jamie) of the play is a surrogate for O'Neill's own family and, through them, the playwright wrestles with his past demons.

Covering a single day and night, O'Neill's play traces the impact on the family relapse into a drug addiction and younger son Edmund's being institutionalized for consumption. These events reopen old wounds and resentments and initiate a harrowing series of accusations and recriminations that threaten to tear apart the family.

At turns haunting, riveting, and emotionally lacerating, Long Day's Journey Into Night is one of O'Neill's greatest plays.

Directed by Arvin Brown, starring Robert Ryan, Stacy Keach, Geraldine Fitzgerald with James Naughton and Paddy Croft


Review:
This work is interesting enough for its history. Completed in 1940, Long Day's Journey Into Night is an autobiographical play Eugene O'Neill wrote that--because of the highly personal writing about his family--was not to be released until 25 years after his death, which occurred in 1953. But since O'Neill's immediate family had died in the early 1920s, his wife allowed publication of the play in 1956. Besides the history alone, the play is fascinating in its own right. It tells of the "Tyrones"--a fictional name for what is clearly the O'Neills. Theirs is not a happy tale: The youngest son (Edmond) is sent to a sanitarium to recover from tuberculosis; he despises his father for sending him; his mother is wrecked by narcotics; and his older brother by drink. In real-life these factors conspired to turn O'Neill into who he was--a tormented individual and a brilliant playwright.

Book Description: Random House Uk Ltd Jan 1956, 1956. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 14x128x194 mm. Neuware - This is as close as the public will come to an autobiography, although its presentation in play form will perhaps mislead some potential readers. Written in 1940, now posthumously published, this autobiographical play shows the famous playwright grappling with the raw material of his youth and home surroundings. It is starkly realistic, gloomy to the point of desperation, often dull and formless - but it is a brave attempt to face the implications of a difficult heritage. These were indeed discouraging:- a swashbuckling Irish father, who had attained a certain prosperity as a handsome actor, who was given to alternate uts of drunken br g doce to and sentimentality; an older brother, of the ne'er de well type, given to drink, whoring and sloth, who showed 'Edmund' (the consumptive protagonist of the play- presumably O'Neill himself) a baffling, Janus-faced love and jealousy; and a mother, worn out both by conflict with these male characters and a homeless; up-rooted life, who becomes a hopeless drug addict. It is impossible to say that O'Neill has fashioned a real play out of the Ibaenc que facts. He has merely told his story in conversational form, his accustomed medium, devoid- this time of his poetic language. Certainly this is not stage material. Let us hope the little theatres will not claim it as their own. Rather it is material for biographers and psychologists, particularly those seeking clues to genius. For a selected audience, and definitely not for bed- time reading. (Kirkus Reviews) 160 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780224610735
