Chekhov’s celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier award-winning playwright Simon Stephens.

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.

Simon Stephen's new adaption of The Seagull received its premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, London on 3 October 2017.
