Sea Wall

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge make their Public Theater debut in an unforgettable and incredibly intimate evening of theater.

Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (Heisenberg, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), performs SEA WALL, an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable.

Gyllenhaal continues his artistic collaboration with Olivier Award-nominated playwright Nick Payne (Constellations, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet) in A LIFE, a meditation on how we say goodbye to those we love most.

Directed by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House, The Deep Blue Sea), this heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love, SEA WALL / A LIFE is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
