Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut as Nina in Anya Reiss’ unique modernisation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.

‘We need the theatre, couldn’t, couldn’t do without it. Could we?’

A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside where dreams are in tatters, hopes dashed, hearts broken and there is nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.

Following on from their critically acclaimed, five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, the Jamie Lloyd Company’s second show in the Playhouse Season sees Anya Reiss propel Chekhov’s tale of ambition, love, loneliness and fame into the 21st century.

The cast is completed by Danny Ashok (as Medvedenko), Robert Glenister (as Sorin), Tom Rhys Harrie (as Trigorin), Daniel Monks (as Konstantin), Tamzin Outhwaite (as Polina), Patrick Robinson (as Dorn), Seun Shote (as Shamrayev), Indira Varma (as Arkadina) and Sophie Wu (as Masha).
