The Seagull at Lyric Hammersmith/servlet/file/store5/item396190/version1/fileservice770/396190_770_preview.jpg

Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka and Art. 

Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece The Seagull is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new adaptation by Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, directed by Sean Holmes and starring Lesley Sharp as Irina Arkadina.

Adelayo Adedayo plays Nina, Michele Austin plays Pauline, Paul Higgins plays Hugo Dorn, Cherrelle Skeete plays Marcia, Nicolas Tennant plays Peter Sorin and Brian Vernel plays Konstantin.

Switching effortlessly between the ridiculous and the profound The Seagull forensically examines the transcendence and destructiveness of love. The burning need to create Art, and how harshly that need can be crushed, permeates this classic play.   

Age Recommendation: 14+
