‘Live Theatre on Film’
‘LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT’. 7.30pm
Shakespeare’s Guildhall Trust brings ‘Live Theatre on Film’ courtesy of DIGITAL THEATRE
at St.Georges Guildhall.
The first of the season of three plays.
Anthony Page -Directed this brilliant revival on stage at the Apollo Theatre in London and it boasted glowing performances by amazing David Suchet as James Tyrone and American, Laurie Metcalfe as Mary Tyrone.
Eugene O’Neill’s family drama is a moving piece and may keep you coming back to the play over and over again. It is also very closely related to the authors experience.
As you watch the Tyrone family’s grief unravel, in the course of one single sunny day in Connecticut, you will see how everything has its origins in the past……
Laurie Metcalf played at the National Theatre in a production of All my Sons but playing with David Suchet she was a revelation and refused to get inside Mary Tyrone and she finds the truth as she charts the terrible progress of her drug dependence. She breaks down as the day proceeds, lapsing into violent mood swings.
Kyle Soller plays Edmund Tyrone with the self-destructiveness needed to become the fragile observer of the inferno engulfing his family.
Whichever way you look at it, and however troubled it may seem the play allows you to leave the Theatre uplifted and not depressed by the playwrights unflinching ability to confront his troubled past.
Season offer for all three plays in Feb, March & April see at the box Office.
