Why See The Seagull?

Emilia Clarke flies again in the seagull

Emila Clarke will return to the West End in the Seagull! Adapted by Anya Reiss and directed by Jamie Lloyd the show was originally part of a year-long residency at the Playhouse Theatre, before being shuttered by the initial COVID-19 lockdown. Updated to the modern-day, the themes of Checkov's masterpiece; hidden desire, long-held secrets, and dreams quashed are just as relevant today as they ever have been.

Best known for her iconic turn as troubled Queen Daenerys Targaryen in HBO's worldwide mega-hit Game of Thrones, Clark plays Nina, a young woman with dreams of becoming an actress, whose world is turned upside down following a visit to a neighbouring country house. 

What is the story of The Seagull?

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. A bit of a hack job with an 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.
