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.

Disappointed by modern staging of a classic Russian play first performed in 1896 with Black actors playing at least half of the characters . Some of the acting was very poor . I left at the interval .
