The Seagull tickets starring Emilia Clarke tickets on sale 6 January!

Emilia Clarke skyrocketed to fame playing silver locked Khalessi Daenerys Targaryen on HBO smash hit drama Game of Thrones. She now makes her West End debut playing Nina in The Seagull as part of Jamie Lloyd’s new season at the Playhouse Theatre. 

The Seagull Emilia Clarke stars!

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is set to make her West End debut in Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. Directed by Jamie Lloyd, Reiss’ interpretation uses modern language to present a new take on this darkly comedic classic.

Nina is looking for a way out of her circumstances. Fame and fortune wouldn’t be too bad, either. There’s a writer longing for recognition, an actress fighting against time. The isolated countryside home seems to be a place where hopes and dreams are torn and tattered, hearts are broken and there is no place to turn. 

When there is no where to turn you might just have to turn on each other.

Peter Scott12th March

Surprisingly I liked the honing down of costume, set, movement - there were no distractions from the dialogue, the superb revealing of relationships and complex emotions. Congratulations to the actors for giving us such nuanced performances. The presentation spoke to me of Verbatum Theatre, which has been effectively employed in London in recent years to give a voice to the voiceless and to raise issues of global interest. I did find some of the dialogue a little hard to hear; that might be partly due to my ears and partly down to me,beers of the audience who can’t sit still for long. Thank you for another wonderful presentation of Chekhov’s great work.

Mr Anthony Quiney12th March

A novel way to present a classic, well cast, and dramatic, even though, occasionally, scenes dragged and became over-wordy.

Andre Klemann12th March

First part with 100 min. a little bit to long. Second is only 45 min.
