London Productions of THE SEAGULL Starring Emilia Clarke and A DOLL'S HOUSE Starring Jessica Chastain are Postponed
The Jamie Lloyd Company has announced that, due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic, Anya Reiss' adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull and Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, in a version by Frank McGuinness are both now postponed. When the season reopens Emilia Clarke will reprise her role as Nina in The Seagull and Jessica Chastain will lead the company of A Doll's House, with full casts and dates to be announced.
Jamie Lloyd said today, "This is, of course, an incredibly challenging time for everyone, but we are looking forward to presenting our season to audiences in the future. I'm thrilled that Emilia Clarke and Jessica Chastain will lead The Seagull and A Doll's House as soon as we can get back into the theatre. We also remain committed to offering thousands of £15 and free tickets, together with our unique education work and our exciting new Emerge scheme, as soon as the season reopens."

The schemes inaugural participants, Rona Berisha Castroiti (Sound Design), Alessandra Davison (Director), Rida Hamidou (Writer), Maeve Roscoe (Writer) and Spiky Saul (Director), will return under the mentorship of Jamie Lloyd, Anya Reiss and George Dennis when the season recommences.
