Unrequited love. Creative jealousy. Guns. Vodka and Art.

Chekhov’s masterpiece 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.

In a new adaptation by Simon Stephens.

Ages 14 +

Lyric Hammersmith [Off West End]

“A belter: chilling, impassioned, funny... Really spreads its wings, gaining power and stature until it’s almost overwhelming.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A vivid production. More full of anger than languor. Desperation and delight are more evident than in most Chekhov productions.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“One of the funniest Seagulls, but also one of the most heartbreaking... Sharp’s Irina is monstrously funny but also terrifying.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Bracing but imperfect... Refreshed and rebooted for a younger generation... Fiercely modern dress... Sharp does fine work.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Clever and cool, if slightly thin, adaptation... An amazing cast.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Fresh and accomplished... Radical timewarping leaves a fair bit of damage to Chekhov’s themes in its wake... A touching comedy.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Sharp is always watchable... The pace drags. There’s insufficient sense of context... Best wait, all told, for the next revival.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)
