News   Fairbairn, Street, Duerr, Harvey and Jesneck to Star in York Shakespeare Company's Long Day's Journey Into Night
 
The York Shakespeare Company will present Long Day's Journey Into Night, Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning play of family dysfunction, May 28-June 12 at the Lion Theater.

The production, which officially opens May 29, will feature Bill Fairbairn as James Tyrone, Rebecca Street as Mary, Seth Duerr as Jamie, Alexander Harvey as Edmund and Julie Jesneck as Cathleen. Duerr will also direct the show, with a creative team including scenic designer Stephen K. Dobay, costume designer Sean Sullivan, lighting designer Driscoll Otto and sound designer John D. Ivy.

O'Neill's autobiographical drama covers one day in 1912 in the New England summer home of James Tyrone, a faded actor and former matinee idol. Tyrone; his drug-addicted wife, Mary; and his two sons, the self-destructive Jamie and the sickly Edmund, are seen confessing, hurting and attempting to show their love for one another as they grope through the darkness to return home.

The Lion Theater is located on Theatre Row at 410 West 42nd Street. For tickets call (212) 279-4200 or visit ticketcentral.com.
