The Seagull

Previews from 3 October 2017

Lyric Hammersmith

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

Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivieraward winning playwright Simon Stephens directed by Sean Holmes.

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 this classic play.
