A new  West End  production has been announced of Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer-winning play of 1956, Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Anthony Page will direct  a cast led by David Suchet, who is returning to the West End following his acclaimed performance in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons last year.

His co-stars will include Laurie Metcalf, still probably best known as Jackie in the US sitcom Rosanne and for her recurring role as Sheldon’s mom in The Big Bang Theory, and Kyle Soller, who recently starred in the Royal Court’s production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s The Faith Machine (where he exuded neurotic energy, according to our reviewer) and the Young Vic’s production of Government Inspector.

Anthony Page’s recent productions include the Old Vic’s slick revival of Noel Coward’s Design For Living and a Broadway staging of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot which starred Nathan Lane and John Goodman.

The production will open at the Apollo Theatre in London on 10th April 2012 with previews from the 2nd April.
