By J.B. Priestley.
Performed by
Cygnet Company.
Directed by Richard Digby Day.

As a dramatist the prolific J. B. Priestley has never fallen from fashion but a number of his plays have been neglected.  The Long Mirror [1940] is one of these.

Set in a Welsh guest house, it is a powerful combination of strained personal relationships caught up in Priestley’s own fascination with the seeming tricks that time can play.

Richard Digby Day is Welsh-born and was the first student of Direction at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where he was Leverhulme Scholar.  He has been director of several British Regional Theatres, including York Theatre Royal, Exeter Northcott Theatre and Nottingham Playhouse.  His work has been seen in the West End and on tour in the UK,  In the USA he has been director of the National Theatre Institute and has worked in many American Universities.  More recently he has been director of Fordham University, U.S.A. and in july 2017 directed Ian McKellen in a new one-person performance that was seen at the Park Theatre, London.
He has worked for Cygnet on several previous occasions, directing Dr Faustus, Hard Times & Christmas in Venice.
