Sea Wall

£24+

In celebration of our 200th Birthday, the acclaimed Paines Plough production of Sea Wall, by Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, National Theatre/West End), directed by George Perrin and performed by the multi-award winning Andrew Scott, will play at The Old Vic for just 2 weeks from Mon 18 Jun.

Things for Alex are good. He loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job. But sometimes the force of life can crash against you. Sometimes everything you thought you could always depend on can be taken away. Sea Wall was written by Simon Stephens as a stage play for Andrew Scott and now comes to The Old Vic in a strictly limited run, with tickets from just £10. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this quietly devastating monologue.

Living in one of the most expensive cities in the United States as a stereotypically broke college student sounds like a financial disaster on paper. Especially when you're like me and have zero economic impulse control. As the internet youths would say, '[My money] is here for a good time. Not a long time.' And living just steps from some of the most iconic Broadway theatres and productions doesn't help my case much either.
