Photo Flash: First Look at Arena Stage's LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

As the final of three mainstage productions during the two-month Eugene O'Neill Festival spearheaded by Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, Long Day's Journey into Night rounds out this celebration of O'Neill's life and work. The English-born and Canadian-based director and former Stratford Festival Artistic Director Robin Phillips makes his Arena Stage debut to direct his fourth production of this Pulitzer Prize-winning play in a theatrical career spanning more than 50 years.

Long Day's Journey into Night stars two-time Helen Hayes Award winner Helen Carey (Shakespeare Theatre's Major Barbara and Volpone) as substance-abusing mother Mary Tyrone alongside noted stage and screen actor Peter Michael Goetz (Broadway's Macbeth) as actor-father James Tyrone, Sr. Long Day's Journey into Night runs March 30-May 6, 2012 in the Kreeger Theater.

Joining Carey and Goetz in the cast for Long Day's Journey into Night and also making their Arena Stage debuts are Nathan Darrow, who plays younger brother Edmund and was recently in Broadway's In the Next Room, or the vibrator play, and Andy Bean, who plays older brother James Tyrone, Jr. and was in the world premiere of From Prague at the Contemporary American Theater Festival. D.C. favorite Helen Hedman, who was last seen at Arena Stage in Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance, plays the family maid Cathleen.
