The Seagull
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
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 Jamie Lloyd Company has announced that Emilia Clarke is to make her West End debut as Nina in Anya Reiss' adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull, completing the new season at the Playhouse Theatre. The production opens on 19 March 2020, with previews from 11 March, and runs until 30 May.

The production has a design by Soutra Gilmour. Further cast and creative team to be announced.

Emilia Clarke said:
"I am over the moon to be playing Nina in Jamie Lloyd's interpretation of The Seagull. I've long been a fan of the singular vision he brings to each of his masterful productions and the way he approaches classical texts. We are so lucky to be working with Anya's brilliant adaptation, as she brings a light touch of modernity to this beautifully crafted play. I cannot wait to get stuck in with these two visionaries."

Anya Reiss added: "It's a cliche, but the classics really do age and change with you, so I'm thrilled to get another chance to work on The Seagull. I'm even more excited to work with Jamie and Emilia."

Emilia Clarke plays Nina. Her theatre credits include Breakfast at Tiffany's (Cort Theatre, New York). Her television credits include as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones' and for film, Spike Island, Dom Hemingway, Terminator: Genisys, Me Before You, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Last Christmas.
