Following a sold out during the Bristol Old Vic's 250th Anniversary season, Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville reprise their roles in Richard Eyre's acclaimed production of Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece.

The Tyrones' summer home, August 1912. Haunted by the past but unable to face the present, the Tyrones and their two sons test the bonds of a family caught in a cycle of love and resentment.
