There’s plenty that goes into preparing for an Olivier Award-nominated performance – just ask Long Day’s Journey Into Night‘s Lesley Manville.

The 2018 Olivier Award (and, lest we forget, recent Academy Award!) nominee took us round Wyndham’s Theatre‘s dressing room no. 9, and from sofas to champers, told us just why it’s the perfect spot for those pivotal pre-show preparations. Take a look.

Long Day’s Journey Into Night is Eugene O’Neill’s semi-autobiographical tale about the Tyrones – a family haunted by the past but unable to face the present.

Taking place over one day in August 1912, an older couple and their two sons are caught in a cycle of love and resentment. As the night draws in, the family indulge in their vices and the truth unfolds to reveal the ruined lives of each family member.

Official London Theatre is currently offering a no booking fee on all Sunday-Thursday performances of Long Day’s Journey Into Night from 15 March – 5 April 2018 (must book by 31 March).

Book your Long Day’s Journey Into Night tickets, here.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
