February 22 – April 6, 2002 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 4 hours

On a fog-bound summer day, regret and recrimination hang in the air as the Tyrone family negotiates the delicate balance between truth and illusion. James Tyrone, a vain, faded matinee idol, presides over a household in ruin—his wife Mary, whose morphine addiction provides escape; son Edmund, tethered to home yet dreaming of life on the open sea; and son Jamie, whose studied cynicism protects him from a lifetime of failure. The family descends into physical and spiritual ruin, even as their lives are bound together by an unbreakable bond of love.

Eugene O’Neill’s autobiographical masterpiece, which the playwright called “a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood,” will be directed by the Goodman’s Artistic Director Robert Falls.
