Long Day’s Journey Into Night (Pikk päevatee kaob öösse)

Family drama by Eugne O`Neill

This day in August 1912 hasn’t been the best in the lives of the Tyrone family. It all started so well, though – both on this day and many years ago. Tribulations from the past, never resolved, concealed secrets, dependencies, illnesses, self-concept – everything oppressive and saddening that can happen in a person’s life are suddenly front and centre and there’s no way to escape the truth.

Eugene O’Neill, one of the world’s luminaries of classic drama, who won a Pulitzer for this play, once said: I love life. But I don’t love life because it is pretty. Prettiness is only clothes-deep. I am a truer lover than that. I love it naked. There is beauty to me even in its ugliness. In fact, I deny the ugliness entirely, for its vices are often nobler than its virtues, and nearly always closer to a revelation.”
