National Theatre Live: The Seagull
The best of British theatre broadcast to cinemas around the world.
“Brave, compelling and powerful” -Guardian
“Emilia Clarke is irresistible” -Time Out
Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut in this 21st century retelling of Anton Chekhov’s tale of love and loneliness.
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, dreams lie in tatters, hopes dashed, and hearts broken. With nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.
Following his critically acclaimed five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, Jamie Lloyd brings Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Chekhov’s classic play to stage. Filmed in London’s West End.
Tickets are $18 general admission, $12 seniors, $5 students.
National Theatre Live is sponsored by Aviva and distributed internationally (ex-UK) by New York-based BYexperience.
