Long Day's Journey Into Night

When: Oct. 4-27, 7 p.m. 2019

Instead of running from pain, Eugene O’Neill’s Tony and Pulitzer-winning play races full tilt toward the ouch and angst of life. The Tyrones have secrets that simultaneously bleed and feed the family’s addictions and desperate pursuit of love and escape from regret. Encapsulated in the time frame of one day, each of the four richly described characters are an actor’s dream. Capturing the intense interpersonal interactions with authenticity is a director’s greatest challenge. Ubuntu grabs the risks with what result? As this company has proven repeatedly in the last few years, the move is fearless and certain to offer reward. For extended pleasure, travel to Danville’s Tao House, the site where O’Neill penned what some consider the greatest American tragedy ever written.
