On a cold, wet Sunday afternoon, Sept. 3, we were privileged to attend the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company’s final performance of Eugene O’Neill’s “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” which is a classic of alcoholism, drug addiction, and the love, hate, bickering, and blame seething within a family. It was one of the most honest, powerful, and absorbing dramas we have ever experienced. At the intermission, the audience, which did not fill the house, applauded. At the end they gave the actors a standing ovation.
We want to commend the Weston Playhouse Theatre Company’s courage for offering this play, which is so much more than entertainment.
Nancy and Malcolm Bell, Weston
