The Seagull

Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut as Nina in Anya Reiss’ unique modernisation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.

‘We need the theatre, couldn’t, couldn’t do without it. Could we?’

A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside where dreams are in tatters, hopes dashed, hearts broken and there is nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.

Following on from their critically acclaimed, five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, the Jamie Lloyd Company’s second show in the Playhouse Season sees Anya Reiss propel Chekhov’s tale of ambition, love, loneliness and fame into the 21st century.

What the press say

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

    Evening Standard

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

    The Times

  • 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

    Time Out

  • 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.
