Chekhov's celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens directed by Artistic Director Sean Holmes.

Check out a first look of the show below!

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 this classic play.

Adelayo Adedayo plays Nina, Michele Austin plays Pauline, Lloyd Cooney plays Jacob, Nicholas Gleaves plays Boris Trigorin, Paul Higgins plays Hugo, Lloyd Hutchinson plays Leo, Lesley Sharp plays Irina, Cherrelle Skeete plays Marcia, Raphael Sowole plays Simeon, Nicolas Tennant plays Peter and Brian Vernel plays Konstantin.
