This is the first full production history of Long Day's
Journey Into Night, by Eugene O'Neill, one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century. It provides a
detailed account of the most significant productions throughout the world, on stage, film, and television. Brenda Murphy examines
the unique circumstances that led to the posthumous world premiere in Stockholm, in a Swedish translation. Murphy also explores
the subsequent first production in English, on Broadway, which established a standard for future directors and actors. The
book conveys the unique interpretations of the Tyrone family by such actors as Fredric March, Jason Robards, Laurence Olivier,
Ralph Richardson, Katharine Hepburn, Colleen Dewhurst, Ruby Dee, Kevin Spacey, Jack Lemmon, and Alan Bates, among other distinguished
theatre artists. An extensive production chronology provides details about nearly 100 productions throughout the world. This
illustrated history also includes an extensive bibliography, discography, and videography.
