The Lyric Hammersmith’s production of The Seagull is set to begin London performances October 3 ahead of an October 11 opening night. The new adaptation of Chekhov’s classic play by Olivier Award-winning Curious Incident playwright Simon Stephens features direction by Sean Holmes.
Starring Lesley Sharp, the production notes state: “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 throughout the play.”
