Stage and screen stars Matthew Beard, Rory Keenan and Jessica Regan will join leads Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville in the West End transfer of Long Day’s Journey Into Night.

For Regan, the news means a return to the role of Cathleen at Wyndham’s Theatre, having played her in the 2016 Bristol Old Vic production. Beard and Keenan will join the company as Edmund Tyrone and James Tyrone Jr, alongside the previously announced Irons and Manville, who will play James and Mary Tyrone in Richard Eyre’s acclaimed production.

Considered one of the most powerful American plays of the 20th century, Long Day’s Journey Into Night will play a strictly limited 10 week West End season at Wyndham’s Theatre from 27 January to 7 April 2018.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night is set in the Tyrones’ summer home, August 1912. Haunted by the past but unable to face the truth of the present, the Tyrones and their two sons test the bonds of a family caught in the cycle of love and resentment. As day turns to night and the family indulge in their vices, the truth unravels leaving behind a quartet of ruined lives.
