Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville will star in a new production of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night as part of the Bristol Old Vic’s 250th anniversary season next year.

Richard Eyre will direct the production, which marks a further collaboration between the director and Manville, following their work together on the Olivier-winning Ghosts. Irons returns to the stage for the first time since starring as Harold Macmillan in the National Theatre’s production of Never So Good in 2008. [Actually, Jeremy was in The Gods Weep in 2010.]

Long Day’s Journey into Night, widely considered one of the greatest tragedies of the modern age, takes place over a single day and follows ageing actor James Tyrone and his wife Mary and their family as they struggle through financial hardship and drug addiction.

Eyre said: “The first play I ever saw – at the age of 15 – was at Bristol Old Vic. To be back here over 50 years later to direct… Long Day’s Journey into Night – one of the greatest (and saddest) plays ever written – is a real privilege.”

The 1956 play will be one of four new productions that will each celebrate one century in the theatre’s lifespan.

In Georgian London no one is more famous than Samuel Foote. Satirist, impressionist and dangerous comedian, he has become a celebrity in a city and at a moment in time when the concept of selling personality was born. He even has the ear of the king.

Adored by many, despised by some, Foote finds himself at the sharp end of attacks from the press…and a surgeon’s knife. And in an age obsessed with fame, his colleagues from the worlds of science and the stage – from Benjamin Franklin to David Garrick – begin to wonder: does fame make you mad?

Ian Kelly’s riotously funny new play, based on his award-winning biography of Foote, explores our obsession with celebrities, and their rise and fall, through the true story of the Oscar Wilde of the 18th century. Kelly’s other biographies include Antonin Careme, Beau Brummell, Giacomo Casanova (Sunday Times Biography of the Year 2008), and Dame Vivienne Westwood.

Richard Eyre returns to Hampstead following the sell out hit The Last Of The Duchess. His recent theatre credits include Ghosts (Alemida/West End), Pajama Game (Chichester/West End) and Guys and Dolls (National Theatre).

BAFTA and Olivier award-winner Simon Russell Beale makes his Hampstead debut. His recent theatre credits include King Lear (National Theatre), Privates on Parade (West End) and the forthcoming Temple (Donmar).

Running time is approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes including an interval.

Isabella Rossellini presented a theatrical tribute to one of the most celebrated actresses of the 20th century. Marking the centennial of Ingrid Bergman’s birth on August 29, 1915, Rossellini was joined in performance by actor Jeremy Irons to uncover the woman and artist behind the screen legend. The staging incorporated Rossellini’s own memories of her mother, plus interviews, unpublished letters, personal videos, and previously unreleased video clips and images from private Bergman’s archives.
Rossellini and Irons performed live on stage portraying Bergman and various characters from her colorful life, guiding the audience through her experiences while original film footage and images from her private archive were projected on a screen. Woven throughout the performance were testimonies and stories from friends and artists she knew and worked with, such as Roberto Rossellini, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Capa, Ernest Hemingway, and many others.
