Olivier Award winner Anthony Boyle has joined the cast of Long Day's Journey into Night, the latest revival of Eugene O'Neill's celebrated classic play. Performances run at Wyndham's Theatre from 19 March.

Boyle, best known for originating the role of Scorpius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in the West End (Olivier Award) and on Broadway (Tony Award nomination), will play Edmund Tyrone. He replaces the previously announced Alex Lawther, who has withdrawn from the production due to scheduling conflicts.

As previously announced, the starry cast also features Brian Cox (Succession) as James Tyrone, Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) as Mary Tyrone, Daryl McCormack (Good Luck to You, Leo Grande) as James Jr, and Louisa Harland (Derry Girls) as Cathleen.

Long Day's Journey into Night takes place over one summer day in the life of the Tyrone family. Closely based on O'Neill's own dysfunctional family, the story shows how addiction, betrayal, and love rock the Tyrones' lives.
