    Just days ahead of the first preview of The Seagull at the Lyric Hammersmith, Lesley Sharp and the rest of the cast are now in final rehearsals.

    The first of Anton Chekhov's great works, The Seagull is celebrated as one of the most important plays of the nineteenth century and is given vibrant new life in this dynamic new adaptation by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens.

    Switching effortlessly between the ridiculous and the profound, The Seagull explores the transcendence and destructiveness of love. The burning need to create Art and how harshly that need can be crushed permeates throughout the play. 

    Playing at the Lyric Hammersmith from 3 October to 4 November 2017, this production also stars Adelayo Adedayo, Michele Austin, Paul Higgins, Cherrelle Skeete, Nicolas Tennant and Brian Vernel.
