About the show
Set in a remote country house, The Seagull centres on a quartet of characters as they clash over art and love: Nina, a young woman longing for fame as an actress; Konstantin, an aspiring playwright; Trigorin, an esteemed but unfulfilled writer; and Arkadina, a glamorous actress fighting against the tide of time.
Emilia Clarke stars as Nina. Clarke is best known for playing Daenerys in hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, for which she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. Having previously appeared on Broadway in Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Seagull marks her first West End engagement.
Clarke is joined by fellow Game of Thrones alumni Indira Varma as Arkadina, Tom Rhys Harries as Trigorin, and Daniel Monks as Konstantin. Further casting includes Tamzin Outhwaite, Sophie Wu, Robert Glenister, Patrick Robinson, Danny Ashok and Seun Shote.
The Seagull is the second offering in Olivier Award winning director Jamie Lloyd’s season at the Playhouse Theatre, which began with Cyrano de Bergerac and concludes with A Doll’s House, starring Jessica Chastain.
Lloyd collaborates with playwright Anya Reiss, who previously adapted Chekhov’s Russian classic for Southwark Playhouse, relocating the action to the Isle of Man. Other creatives include set designer Soutra Gilmour (Betrayal; & Juliet).
Considered the first of Chekhov’s four major plays, The Seagull is set to be an exciting new revival in the West End. Catch Emilia Clarke’s anticipated star turn from 11 March 2020.
