Love and art come to blows in this exciting new production of the Chekov thrillerBuy Tickets
Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens has retooled Chekov's celebrated masterpiece in a dynamic production at the Lyric Hammersmith, premiering this October. Helmed by Sean Holmes, it stars Lesley Sharp (Scott and Bailey) as Irina Arkadina. The Seagull is celebrated throughout the theatre world as one of the most important plays of the 1800s. Following two successful productions on Broadway and an acclaimed run at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre in 2015, this sparkling new version reimagines the epic work as never before.
A group of well-heeled guests gather at the country house of a retired civil servant, to see a new avant-garde play that his young nephew has written. With a heavy emphasis on symbolism, the play is a disaster and is abandoned after the first act. With emotions running high after the aborted performance, we discover a tangle of love triangles amongst the characters, self-doubt and a rampaging pursuit of happiness that threatens to overturn everybody's beliefs and sensibilities.
Opening night: 3 October 2017
