Set in a dysto­pi­an near future where pro­cre­ation is strictly con­trolled to breed out ill­nesses and genet­ic defects, a young girl iden­ti­fied as a psy­cho­path is being stud­ied in a labor­at­ory.

LongDay2

Long Day’s Journey into Night by Eugene O’Neil

Directed by Tony Cownie. Produced by The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh. Opened January, 2014.

Cast included: Paul Shelley, Adam Best, Nicola Roy, Timothy Evers

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
