Description

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

Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece 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.

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 throughout the play.

I adored it: a lively new version of a classic.  This is a high-flying Seagull

Designed by Jon Bausor, it makes exquisite sense of this theatre’s sylvan setting

A fresh. Free-flying new adaptation.  This electric, blackly funny adaptation brings out both the venom and the anguish of hopeless longing in Chekhov’s original; an intelligently provocative production

Terrific.  Matthew Dunster’s superbly acted revival achieves the near-impossible: it jolts its audience awake with its dream-like action.  I’ve never quite heard laughter like it, indoors or out…ripples of amusement turning into cascades of merriment.
