[Perspectives] The vanishing act

One of the most poignant representations of the devastating impact of morphine addiction on a family comes from Eugene O’Neill’s play Long Day’s Journey Into Night, written in 1941–42 but published only in 1956. In this work, rightly considered one of the best American plays of the 20th century, O’Neill drew inspiration for the characters from his own family who had to face his mother’s morphine addiction. Time has not dented the intensity of this seminal work now on stage in a superb production directed by Richard Eyre at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London, UK.
