After playing Logan Roy on the small screen, Brian Cox is returning to the stage for his first West End role in almost a decade
With Succession wrapping up, Brian Cox is stepping away from iconic foul-mouthed media mogul Logan Roy and heading back to the theatre next year to star in Eugene O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Widely regarded as one of the greatest American plays of the 20th century, Long Day’s Journey Into Night explores themes like love, hate, addiction and betrayal through the lens of a day in the life of the Tyrones, based on O’Neill’s own dysfunctional family.
Jeremy Herrin is directing this production at Wyndham’s Theatre and Brian Cox will be starring as James Tyrone, opposite Patricia Clarkson as the matriarch Mary Tyrone, Alex Lawther as Edmund, Daryl McCormack as James Jr and Louisa Harland as Cathleen. Long Day’s Journey Into Night isn’t opening until March next year, so you’ve got a while to wait before you can see Cox in action, but tickets are on sale now, with 50 seats at £25 available for every performance.
