The big opening of Jamie Lloyd's star-studded production of Chekhov's The Seagull ⁠— freely adapted from the original source material by Anya Reiss (who's no stranger to the Russian playwright's works, i.e.Three Sisters, Uncle Vanya) ⁠— is fast approaching. Now with just two weeks ahead of the show's first performance at the Playhouse Theatre in London, a flock of first-look photos of Emilia Clarke and castmates in rehearsals have come flying in.
