Classic American drama about a dys­func­tional fam­ily in  free-fall dur­ing one emo­tion­ally gruelling day. Diana played the demand­ing role of Mary Tyrone, the fam­ily mat­ri­arch suf­fer­ing a slow men­tal dis­in­teg­ra­tion through her morphine addiction .

Reviewers say:
“Diana Kent’s play­ing of Mary, nervously fra­gile, fall­ing vis­ibly into the lonely par­al­lel world of her addic­tion, is espe­cially mov­ing” The Daily Telegraph,

“Diana Kent gives a haunt­ing per­form­ance . . .” The Times

“Kent makes Mary seem so fra­gile . . . she appears to be almost blown around the stage. A sober­ing por­trayal of addic­tion.” British Theatre Guide
