Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal for THE SEAGULL at the Lyric Hammersmith

The Seagull begins previews at The Lyric Hammersmith on Tuesday 3 October for an opening on 11 October 2017. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka. And Art. Chekhov's celebrated masterpiece is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new version by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens directed by Sean Holmes.

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.

The cast includes: Adelayo Adedayo, Michele Austin, Lloyd Cooney, Nicholas Gleaves, Paul Higgins, Lloyd Hutchinson, Lesley Sharp, Cherrelle Skeete, Raphael Sowole, Nicolas Tennant and Brian Vernel.
