“Long Day’s Journey Into Night was KC’s finest show of 2013.”
– Robert Trussell, Kansas City Star

One of the most admired plays of the 20th century, this is the widely acknowledged masterwork from America’s leading dramatist. A loving, autobiographical account of the haunted Tyrone family, a family in which almost every family can see itself reflected, this moving play explores the hope of family love as it attempts to heal the wounds of marriage, of parenthood, and of sonship with a force that will never be forgotten.
