Chekhov’s 19th-century play The Seagull arrives at the Harold Pinter Theatre for 11 weeks, with Game of Thrones‘ star Emilia Clarke making her West End debut as Nina
Many consider Russian dramatist Anton Chekhov to be one of the greatest writers of all time. He produced four classic plays, the first of which has been given a 21st-century modernisation and will open in London this summer.
The Seagull premiered in St Petersburg in 1896 and the audience – they were so intimidating that an actress lost her voice! In 1898, Russian theatre practitioner Konstantin Stanislavski directed a production of The Seagull and it became a triumph.
From 29 June 2022, Anya Reiss’ modern adaptation will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Me Before You) will make her West End debut as Nina, alongside Tom Rhys Harries (White Lines), Daniel Monks (The Normal Heart), Sophie Wu (Fresh Meat) and Indira Varma (Game of Thrones).
Wednesday 29 June – Saturday 10 September 2022.
Mon-Sat 7.30pm; Sat 2.30pm. Times and dates can vary, please check online before booking.
Tickets from £25.
