Olivier Award winner Anthony Boyle has joined the cast of Long Day’s Journey into Night and will replace the previously announced Alex Lawther in the latest revival of Eugene O’Neill’s celebrated classic play starring Brian Cox at the Wyndham’s Theatre from 19th March.
Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Boyle is best known for appearing in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child where he originated the role of Scorpius Malfoy and will play Edmund Tyrone. He replaces Alex Lawther, who has been forced to withdraw from the production due to scheduling conflicts.
As announced previously, the stellar cast will also feature Brian Cox as James Tyrone, Patricia Clarkson as Mary Tyrone, Daryl McCormack as James Jr, and Louisa Harland as Cathleen.
Closely based on O’Neill’s own dysfunctional family, the plot of Long Day’s Journey into Night takes place over a single summer day in the life of the Tyrone family and shows how betrayal, addiction, and love rock the Tyrones’ lives.
