LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHt
by Eugene O’Neill
directed by Michael Socrates Moran
Widely considered his finest work, Eugene O’Neill’s Tony- and Pulitzer–winning drama follows the Tyrones—a family shaped by addiction, resentment, and regret—through a single day in August as years of secrets begin to emerge.
Moving through the fractures in a family’s history, from racial alienation to economic insecurity to dreams deferred, Ubuntu Artistic Director Michael Moran helms a dreamlike production that conjures the ghosts of America’s pain, and the genesis of the opioid crisis facing the country today.

“Haunting… intimate… heartbreaking… an emotionally resonant portrayal of a family simmering with resentment and denial and casual cruelty, but also with wounded, resigned love.”
Sam Hurwitt, Mercury News
“As the opioid epidemic sweeps across the United States, our gut-wrenching familiarity with addiction and loss is everywhere. Ubuntu boldly thrusts Eugene O’Neill into 2019, with a powerhouse cast and inventive staging... a rare opportunity to see a smart, courageous, and contemporary play about our addictions.”
