American actress Laurie Metcalf, best known for her role as Jackie Harris in the hit comedy series Roseanne, will be returning to the London stage to star opposite David Suchet in the upcoming drama Long Day's Journey Into Night at the Apollo Theatre.

It has been 10 years since she last performed in London's Westend when she made her British stage debut in 2001 in All My Sons at the National Theatre. Metcalf began her career in theatre at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Her most recent stage endeavours include her appearance in David Mamet's November of which she received a Tony Award nomination, Voice Lessons in Hollywood and off-Broadway and Detroit at the Steppenwolf's Theatre in Chicago.

Winning a Tony for its premiere production in 1957, Long Day's Journey Into Night  centres on James Tyrone and his wife and children as they embark on a fateful summers day battling old demons as old wounds are opened. The play was also made into a film in 1962 starring Katherine Hepburn Ralph Richardson.

Long Day's Journey Into Night will open at London's Apollo Theatre from 2 April 2012 and will be directed by Anthony Page.
