Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka. And Art.
Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version 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.
Digital Theatre in partnership with the Lyric have been following the process of putting on The Seagull following its creation from day one through to opening night. Watch this short extract from the documentary.
