Born in New York City (1888),  Eugene O' Neill was the first great American playwright. He was four times awarded the Pulitzer Prize and in 1936 he became the only American playwright ever awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. ''Long Day's Journey into Night'' was written in 1940-1941, but premiered three years after his death, in Sweden (1956) and then on Broadway earning huge recognition, a Tony Award for Best Play (1956) and the Pulitzer Prize in 1957.It is widely considered to be Eugene O'Neill’s magnum opus and one of the all-time great classics of the 20th Century.

“LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT has been worth waiting for.
It restores the drama to literature and the theatre to art.”
—NY Times.

This is a semi-autobiographical play, which the playwright called “a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood". With a searing cry from his heart, O' Neill portrays his own emotionally damaged family, while presenting the dramatized story of Tayron family as they struggle – under crushing burdens of guilt, resentment and dread – to maintain the unifying bonds of love.
